A Conversation with the Haas Brothers

Join us for an evening with the Haas Brothers, the inimitable trailblazers of art and design. Twins Simon and Nikolai “Niki” Haas are known for blurring the line between art and design through their furniture design and fabrication studio in Los Angeles.

Their works are playful, provocative, and striking, and the materials range from brass, bronze and porcelain and fur to highly technical resins and polyurethane. They’re hailed in celebrity power circles, with projects that have included creating masks for Lady Gaga, creating gold-leafed furniture for Louis Vuitton stores, and designing limited-edition book stands for Rihanna’s newly released visual autobiography.

And as the artists are in town for SOCO Gallery’s new fall exhibition featuring their work, they’re stopping by the Mint for an evening open to the public.
