Originally designed as a solution to a lack of seating at a dinner party, the HAY Weekday Bench is intended to bring people together. Crafted from strong pine planks and treated with a weather-resistant lacquer that will patina beautifully over many years.
The bench’s robust presence is combined with softly rounded joints, creating an inviting and familiar form, that evokes a sense of togetherness when socialising with friends and family on a warm summer’s evening.
Johannes Breuer and Fritz Graber collaborated to create Hannes & Fritz after meeting at ECAL, the university of art and design in Switzerland.
Hannes and Fritz work from Stuttgart and Zurich respectively, with each designer bringing their unique skills and approach to the collaboration. Johannes’ linear and emblematic approach to design contrasts Fritz’s more dynamic and expressive design language. Whilst, in conjunction, they share a deep respect for quality materials and expert production techniques. Together they have created designs for several international furniture companies.
