Item details

The owners of the Ace asked the Haas Brothers: “if there were cave paintings of life in LA over the last 100 years, what would they look like?” The twins responded with graphite glyphs of missile-like floating palms, personalities (Diane Keaton, Ed Ruscha, Abbot Kinney), and local mountain ranges (visible over the front door).

Meet the Creator

The Haas Brothers (b. 1984), fraternal twins Nikolai and Simon, studied stone carving and construction under their father in their hometown of Austin for many years. After being approached by friends who had heard they were adept builders, the pair began working together on small design and construction projects.

In September of 2010 they 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. And in the years since, the brothers have continued to grow their design studio and spend their time prototyping forms and experimenting with materials, surface textures and processes. Their company evolved into a multifaceted operation and has garnered international accolades for set design and props for print and video, one of a kind fashion works and their highly original furniture and object designs.
