More about the designers:

Nikolai and Simon Haas were born in Los Angeles to a painter/stone carver father and a writer/opera singer mother. They spent their youth in Austin, Texas, where they studied stone carving and construction under their father for many years. At age 19 the twins parted ways -- Simon went to study painting and architecture at RISD while Nikolai moved to New York to work as a touring musician with artists like Vincent Gallo, Sean Lennon and Jim O'Rourke. In 2007 the two moved to Los Angeles to join the band RRIICCEE. After a brief cross country tour, the two settled back in Los Angeles where Simon pursued painting and Nikolai continued to write music.

After being approached by friends who had heard they were adept builders, Nikolai and Simon began working together on small design and construction projects. In September 2010 the twins were asked to design materials for and construct a small Johnston Marklee project at Sony Studios in Los Angeles and 'The Haas Brothers' was born. In the two years since, the brothers have worked in the same Downtown Los Angeles studio where they spend their time prototyping forms and experimenting with materials and material applications. Their company has grown into a multifaceted operation -- producing original art and furniture pieces, set design and props for print and video, one of a kind fashion pieces and materials consulting and fabrication for select clients.
