HAF gives you shelter from the storm to enjoy starry nights at open fire. CAMPFIRE is open to the public, every day from 4-10 p.m. click for more!

FUNKTION barstool

Besides the graphic design and the surprisingly simple main construction, made of solid oak planks, each and every part of these seating objects is strictly made of bent 2D material. All this contributes to establishing a distinct visual indentity, simultaneously, reflecting the conceptual mindset of HANSANDFRANZ.


rather than going for an all black version, we at HANSANDFRANZ decided for going one better with our first design for chair and barstool, The concept for the design of the textile is linked to functional paddings, such you see in buses or commuter trains. diffuse and irregular patterns protect the padding in a way that damages are not easily identified at first sight. Most of them being rather unattractive but functional, we interpretated this principal with a textile design that is not only functional but funky.
