This week CFile is taking a closer look at the meteoric rise of The Haas Brothers. Please click here to read Garth Clark’s review of their style in this week’s issue. Below are various videos relating to their practice.
From Crane.tv: “Simon and Nikolai Haas have always been makers. Their studio spawns anything from set design to wearable art, masks for Lady Gaga and gold-leafed furniture for Louis Vuitton stores. Donatella Versace recently commissioned the design duo to make a limited edition collection of fashion and design items covered in the brand’s signature Medusa heads and honeycomb patterns. Ahead of Design Miami/ the twins let us into their ‘weird alien ecosystem.'”

Silverwhite Collective, a San Francisco based design firm, hosted an evening with The Haas Brothers—twin brothers who, according to the Wall Street Journal, “see design as a broader calling: simply put, making things people haven’t seen before.”
“The Haas Brothers redefine the coordinates of what counts as design and what is fetishized as art,” adds Jamie White. Video courtesy of Vector Four.
