Haas Brothers and L'Objet bring a Joshua Tree desert fantasy into the home

A collaboration between Elad Yifrach, creative director of luxury homeware brand L'Objet, and Los Angeles-based twins Simon and Nikolai Haas has produced a menagerie of quirky little creatures for a new range of tableware, interior decor, textiles and fragrance.

Inspired by the ethereal, Dr Seuss-like landscape of the Joshua Tree National Park, in California, the 65-piece collection fuses the best of two brands – the Haas Brothers' wild imaginations and L'Objet's impeccable craftsmanship. The Haas Brothers are known for eccentric, somewhat promiscuous creations, and their ideas have been likened to those of Lewis Carroll.L'OBJET X HAAS BROTHERS_LYNDA BOX_HKD12,200, LAZY SUSAN CATCHALL_HKD6,000.jpg

Subtly dotted with desert motifs, the dinnerware sets the undertone of fantasy. But it's in the decor pieces and textiles where the Haas Brothers best express their love of textures, with porcelain 'fur' , 'scales' and 'skin'.

These whimsical creatures-turned-home staples are sure to spark conversations and add an extraordinary touch to everyday objects

The collection debuted at Miami Art Week in December, where the pieces were used at an exclusive cocktail reception at the Bass Museum. In Wild Things, a book published by L'Objet that chronicles their creative process, the 34-year-old twins say their fascination with the interaction between humans and objects is at the heart of the inspiration.

Haas_Desert_06"We both believe in relationships with objects. People need objects – we develop relationships with objects we use, and it's a relationship that can be profound. If they have a character and they talk back to you in some way, then that relationship becomes stronger and stronger. Our goal with this collaboration was to create a collection that fosters a strong relationship between these objects and the people who use them."

In Asia, the collection is available exclusively at Lane Crawford, in stores and online.L'OBJET x HAAS BROTHERS_VERMICULATION PILLOW_HKD 6,300 each
