“Hall” stands for the hall of buildings, the urban space where they grew up and which they love.“Haus”, for the Bauhaus, the modern architects and designers they admire. The Hall Haus design studio, which enjoys crossing references, was founded in 2020 by Abdoulaye Niang, Sammy Bernoussi, Teddy Sanches and Zakari Boukhari. The first three met on the benches of the Ensci Les Ateliers school in Paris, naturally coming together in this sea of pale faces. Their common tastes and passions, end up welding their links. This quartet from immigrant families, whose heart beats to the rhythm of the “vibrations of the drums of Africa” (IAM, Petit Frère), is multiplying projects linked to their continent of origin with which they wish to get closer.
After a collaboration with Lafayette Anticipation, their participation in the Design Parade festival last year propelled the group to the forefront. For Goodmoods, Teddy talks about the success of their exhibition “Pour Ceux”, presented at the International Youth Union in September 2022, about the beginnings of the Curry Mango chair with which it all started, and about everything that inspires this duality-based collective. It’s a great way to immerse yourself in the Hall Haus mood.
