LOQI Designer Hvass&Hannibal

Danish design duo HVASS&HANNIBAL dream of decorating the walls of a hotel on a tropical island far away. Or a huge gable mural somewhere nice in their hometown Copenhagen. At the other end of the scale, they dream of designing a set of postage stamps – old-school paper ones. Nan Na and Sofie have a knack for creating new worlds and have created a slice of their aesthetic, magical-realist world for LOQI.

Playful patterns. Graphic grids. A colourful chorus of shapes and silhouettes.
Dance your way footloose and fancy free into the fantastical world of HVASS&HANNIBAL.

LOQI Interviews HVASS&HANNIBAL



Q. A museum nobody should miss?
A. The National Gallery in Østre Anlæg Garden, it’s an old museum with a new extension and the mix of these two kinds of architecture is really interesting, with a view over the park where you can see the seasons change.

Q. Craziest place in Copenhagen?
A. Strøget, the inner city shopping street: don’t go there.

Q. An exceptional place around the world?
A. Tromsø, a small Norwegian city north of the arctic circle, it’s completely dark 4 months of the year and in the summer the sun never sets, it creates a really weird atmosphere of afternoon in the middle of the night.

Q. What's the secret of creativity?
A. Hard work and an open mind (+ black tea with oat millk)

Q. What's your favourite quote?
A. “Never trust a man who when left alone in a room with a tea cosy doesn't try it on” – Billy Connoly”
