THANK YOU FOR YOUR REQUEST
We will be in touch soon.
BRABBU has the pleasure to introduces you the fantastical universe of Nikolai and Simon Haas — the L.A. twins formally known to an increasing number of design “aficionados” as The Haas Brothers — is now on full display in “Cool World,” their debut exhibition at R & Company in New York. Then came September 2012 and their fateful trip to New York, where they met with Zesty Meyers and Evan Snyderman, the owners of R & Company.
They promptly returned to Los Angeles and began producing the fabulous, fantastical series of pieces they’re known for today:
Another Art work in the exhibit, the notorious installation “Advocates for the Sexual Outsider,” which R & Company showed at Design Miami/Basel last summer. A crimson, velvet-curtained tent, flanked by bronze phallus-shaped lamps, is entered through a giant pair of vaginal lips covered with “vermiculated” leather.

That piece came about because of the brothers’ desire to change society. (Niki notes that while “Simon is gay and I’m straight,” they’re both stymied by social taboos.)
Ceramic “Accretion” vases, some of whose sea urchin-like surfaces change color under fluorescent light.
Anthropomorphic “Beast” chairs and couches, complete with ebony horns, bronze hooves and sheepskin hides;
A vast range of items, from tables to picture frames, covered in bronze mosaic and dubbed “Hex” because they’re made with six-sided tiles. Each series employs methods the brothers developed themselves through fervent experimentation.
