Johannes Breuer and Fritz Gräber, a German-Swiss design duo, founded Hannes & Fritz after meeting at ECAL in Lausanne, Switzerland. Their collaboration began spontaneously and their friendship grew into a successful partnership. Both designers have distinctive skill sets, with Fritz preferring dynamic and expressive design language, while Hannes leans towards a more linear approach. Their partnership has resulted in successful projects for various international furniture companies. They often start by examining existing archetypal forms and then redefine them within a contemporary context.
