Furniture Collection Inspired By The Wooly Mammoth [Pics]
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.
