Sketch, Fartin Odeur, from the Afreaks series, 2015

This is a sketch. It was designed by Nikolai Haas, The Haas Sisters of Monkeybiz and The Haas Brothers and manufactured by Simon Haas.

This object is not part of the Cooper Hewitt's permanent collection. It was able to spend time at the museum on loan from The Haas Brothers and R & Company as part of Beauty—Cooper Hewitt Design Triennial.

It is dated 2015. Its medium is colored pencil on paper.

This drawing is from a group of preparatory sketches for Afreaks, a series of playful beaded objects by The Haas Brothers. The drawings reveal the geometric underpinnings and basic concept of each strange and whimsical object. Rounded, amorphous shapes and bulbous appendages unite the series with a common language. Each character expresses a childlike attitude that is both reassuring and inquisitive.

It is credited Courtesy of R & Company, New York and The Haas Brothers, Los Angeles.
