The Joy of being Outside

With the three outdoor furniture collections – designed for HAY, Vero and New Works - the Swiss-German studio Hannes & Fritz is allowing visitors a moment of conviviality and joy as they convene outside. With the designers finding joy from working outside, they hope to translate this happiness through the pieces created. The duo wants to reflect on how their design practice takes them outside of their individual social and professional spheres and outside of their own country. 
With fresh air, sun, the scents of Spring and the sound of glasses clinking and laughter, the duo is excited to bring people together in an outdoor environment as a reminder that good design can facilitate joyful moments.
