Twins, Simon and Nikolai Haas, known as The Haas Brothers, are American artists regarded for their sculptures which blur the lines between art and design. They craft their signature anthropomorphic, futuristic and artisanal sculptures in their studio in Los Angeles. They first collaborated in 2009 when they designed furniture for Tobey Maguire. This initial project was followed by celebrity commissions including Donatella Versace, Peter Marino, and Lady Gaga. After opening their studio in Los Angeles in 2010, they have shown their outlandish creations with a mixture of fine art museums and fashion houses. Their first solo museum show was with the Bass Museum of Art in 2018, and their works have been acquired by museums such as the Rhode Island School of Design Museum, Providence; the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
