HAY WEEKDAY BENCH

DESIGN BY HANNES & FRITZ, 2023

Hannes & Fritz’s Weekday Bench was inspired by their impromptu solution to a lack of seating at a dinner party. Retaining the original idea of bringing people together, the Weekday Bench combines a solid, robust presence with softly rounded joints, conveying a sense of warmth and familiarity that invites shared dining and a social atmosphere. Featuring the same simple construction as the classic picnic bench, it is made in strong, durable pine planks that will patinate beautifully and last for many years to come. The Weekday Bench’s strong yet universally appealing character combined with its water-based, weather-resistant surface treatment makes it suitable for outside use in a wide range of settings, from cafés and public parks to private or shared gardens. Available in different sizes in solid pine in a variety of finishes and colours. The benches can also be supplemented with seat cushions in selected textiles for extra comfort.

About the designer

Hannes & Fritz is a design collaboration between German-Swiss design duo 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 favouring a more dynamic, expressive design language, whilst Hannes takes a more linear approach. The duo design for a number of 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 Collection.
