What are your favourite materials, and why?
A requirement for Garpa is always weather resistance and durability. This defines the choice of materials. A particularly attractive feature of Pan is on the one hand, indestructible stainless steel as a static structure, and on the other, the fine, body-defined alignment of the threaded material. Essentially, I am always on the look-out for new materials and combinations.
Your favourite garden worldwide?
The gardens of Cornwall in the south of England have made a lasting impression on me. Here people are very sensitive to their impact on nature.
The designer Christian Hoisl has been developing furniture for Garpa since 1997, among other things, for the series Monterey, United States, and Pan. More information about the designer can be viewed here.
