MEDIA REVIEWS
companying their first ever solo NYC exhibition, "Cool World," debuting on 4 November 2014 at R & Company Gallery, they're releasing a stunning monograph entitled The Haas Brothers Volume 1. Their art, over 176 full color pages, is accompanied by a foreword from R & Company founders Evan Snyderman and Zesty Meyers and essays by actress Laura Dern and designer Berthold Haas.--David Graver "Cool Hunting "
The twins vision exists in a surreal organic and zoomorphic landscape that makes acid redundant, occupied by creatures of various kinds disguised as pots, sofas, tables and chairs. They are cute enough to approach but somehow a tad dangerous when one gets too close.--Garth Clark "cfileonline.org "
Donatella Versace and Lady Gaga snatched up their work, Peter Marino had them create a ceiling for the Guerlain store in Paris, and Damiani gave them a book deal (The Haas Brothers is out now). At the root of their design partnership is a shared appreciation of the absurd. Thier new Accretions-sea-anemone-like-ceramic vases-were apprently inspired by "Ursula's grotto in "The Little Mermaid." They also feel strongly about advocating for the "sexual outsider" and often add explicit touches to their pieces--Wendy Goodman "New York Magazine "
In the past-two years, the Austin-born, Los Angeles-based twins have been commissioned to design the angel wings that Lady Gaga wore in a performance and a collection of one-of-a-kind furniture and a limited-edition clothing and accessories for Donatella Versace; they also signed to the white-hot design-focused New York gallery R & Company-the latter happening just hours after the Versace deal. They have also presented twice at Art Basel in Switzerland and will debut a massive solo show at R & Company November 4, which may well redefine how furniture is showna and perhaps made. They have managed all this while pioneering avant-garde science-and nature-based techniques in leather, ceramics, glass and various other media; releasing their first book (The Haas Brothers; Volume One because, well, they're just getting started)--Michael Slenske "Modern Painters "
The first monograph to be published on the work of Los Angeles-based twin brothers Nikolai and Simon Haas, The Haas Brothers: Volume One (Damiani) features color reproductions, process ephemera, and essays on their often anthropomorphic, eccentric, and curiously carnal oeuvre. Spanning one-of-a-kind fashion pieces, furniture, objets, and installations, works are presented by thematic sources of inspiration. One section, titled "Accretions," outlines the biological process as a method of ceramic-making. In another, the brothers-who cite provocateur Vincent Gallo as a mentor-proclaim, "As humanists, we feel that shame is one of the most counterproductive emotional states for development."--Spencer Bailey "Surface Magazine "
Just as their work finds a dreamlike harmony in asymmetry, the twins' working partnership also seems to be a symbiotic union of mutually beneficial and supplementary talents: Niki is the left brain and Simon the right, except when it's the other way around. And either way, the 30-year-old former musician (Niki) and th former painter (Simon), brothers of actor Lukas Haas, are really jamming now. As they prepared to release their first monograph, The Haas Brothers, out now from Damiani.--Laura Dern "Interview "
In September the brothers' first monograph, The Haas Brothers (Damiani), which includes a contribution from Laura Dern, was published in anticipation of their first U.S solo show, opening at R & Company on November 4. There have been discussions of rug designs and a documentary about their lives by photographer Mason Poole. The grand plans are no accident; quirky as their work can be considered, the brothers are aiming for universal-not niche-appeal.--David Keeps "Departures "
