Haas brothers use the various physical aspects of the now extinct creature to influence a line of pieces.

The Haas Brothers’ latest collection features both mammalian and reptilian pieces of furniture – creating an unsettling but intriguing experience at Design Miami/Basel.

One part of the collection features brass coffee tables and stools that employ the designers’ dynamic hexagon-tile surface, creating a shape that appears to make the furniture lifelike – much like the animals they’re modelled after.

Another part of the collection features distinctly wooly characteristics. Sheepskin seating with carved-wood horns and cloven brass feet, as well as one buffalo-fur bench with it’s own matching tail, yet no head to speak of.

Both brothers were trained in the family business by their stone-carving father, giving them a wealth of experience and authority when it comes to design. It also shows through in certain pieces such as “Fungus Accretion” – a selection of pottery items that have an organic feel to them.

The furniture collection will appear at the Design Miami/Basel event alongside other famous names such as Greta Magnusson Grossman, Joaquim Tenreiro, Christian Wassmann, David Wiseman and Jeff Zimmerman.
