When HAHA first started in the summer 2015, the aim was to create a company that is free from the shackles of the design industry’s norms and rules. Arash and Yu-Ching met while studying the Master’s programme in industrial design at Konstfack in Stockholm. HAHA’s first project lead them to the Vima Collection and a trip to Taiwan. The goal then was to source, produce and to learn from the master craftsmen and women in Taiwan. The journey gave them thorough insights regarding production techniques as well as a deeper appreciation for the spirit of handcrafted objects. Today HAHA’s focus lies on designing and producing well crafted design objects with great emphasis on the tangible experience. The name HAHA is itself a mindset of what the company always strives towards.
