Anna Horvath is a Hungarian-born narrative designer and architect, the founder of AHA. As she was always passionate about storytelling, Anna graduated with an MA in Narrative Environments from Central Saint Martins – University of the Arts London. An architecture degree provides a solid foundation for her spatial design projects.
She has participated in numerous design and architecture projects from small to large scale structures in London, Berlin, Lisbon, Budapest, and Malta. Her portfolio includes projects like the permanent exhibition at the prestigious Jewish Museum in Berlin, furniture design for a favela in Rio de Janeiro, or a pop-up store for Hermes Petit h collection in Lisbon.
Anna’s first furniture collection: Collezione L!Puff has been launched during the Paris Design Week
and her second collection: SORĠI has been selected to represent Malta at ECO Solidarity at CLOSEUP 2021, a two-day trade event presented by International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) and WantedDesign Manhattan.
BIO – AHA Objects
AHA is an emerging design studio based on storytelling, sustainability, and joy.
The narratives are expressed in form of exhibition design ( Identity Design, Cromwell Place ), set design ( Ziguzajg ), retail experience ( Te fit-Tazza Showroom ) and furniture ( Collezione L!Puff ).
Understanding the environmental damage that has been done to our planet, AHA fights for sustainability and a circular economy of the construction industry. The studio designs and produces furniture made of sustainable materials, including their latest body of work: SORĠI, an outdoor furniture collection recycling construction waste for Malta’s public spaces.
Play is a crucial part of AHA’s design methodology leading to joyful colours, shapes, and design solutions. In contrast to the playful approach, there is often a hidden social, cultural, environmental, or political commentary embedded in our objects.
The studio is Malta-based where the designs merit inspiration from local aesthetics and craftsmanship with numerous international projects, sales and collaborations.
