Hannes & Fritz is a design collaboration between Swiss designers Johannes Breuer and Fritz Gräber, who met at ECAL in Lausanne, Switzerland. What started as a friendship developed into a spontaneous design collaboration with the construction of a bench at a dinner party and resulted in their successful partnership. Both designers bring their unique skillset to the collaboration, with Fritz favoring a more dynamic, expressive design language and Hannes taking a more linear approach. The duo has designed for several international furniture companies, often starting their projects by exploring existing archetypal forms before defining them in a more contemporary context. For HAY, hannes&fritz have designed the Weekday Table and Bench collection.
