The Haas Brothers. Unique Beast club chair in Icelandic Sheepskin with carved wooden horns and cast bronze hoof feet.
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.

"The Saola, a long-horned ox, was photographed by a camera in a forest in central Vietnam in September, the WWF said in a statement Wednesday…
The animal was [first] discovered in the remote areas of high mountains near the border with Laos in 1992 when a joint team of WWF and Vietnam’s forest control agency found a skull with unusual horns in a hunter’s home. The find proved to be the first large mammal new to science in more than 50 years, according to the WWF.
In Vietnam, the last sighting of a Saola in the wild was in 1998, according to Dang Dinh Nguyen, director of the Saola natural reserve in central province of Quang Nam.”
