The 2020 Helveticahaus Scholarship application is LIVE!

In the 1965 film Voyage to the Prehistoric Planet – set in the year 2020 – the moon has been colonized and cosmonauts are on their way to Venus. (Spoiler alert: They land on the surface and do battle with, you guessed it, all manner of giant prehistoric beasts. Obviously.) In real-life 2020, however, it’s been nearly 50 years since anyone’s set foot on the moon and nobody even talks about Venus. Thanks to COVID-19, your first year in design school is abruptly cut short, you have to stand in line outside of Trader Joe’s just to buy a banana, and [...]

We have a winner!

“One is the loneliest number that you’ll ever do,” wrote the great philosopher Harry Nilsson back in 1967. “Two can be as bad as one; it’s the loneliest number since the number one.” All of which may or may not have something to do with the fact that there are not one, not two, but three recipients of this year’s coveted Helveticahaus scholarship: Cody Thomas, Elizabeth Pierce, and Roman Dorr. The Spokane Falls Community College design students were chosen by a selection committee comprising design professionals, educators, and community leaders. Two of this year’s recipients have returned to school [...]

Behold: the new Haus Mug.

The Vessel of the People for the Nectar of the Gods “I’m concerned,” writes Hh customer Stevie N. (probably not her real name) “that I don’t own a mug worthy of your Haus Blend coffee. Surely this delicious elixir warrants a vessel designed with care so as to ensure maximum enjoyment.” We couldn’t agree more. So we created one for that very purpose. Behold: the new Haus Mug. White ceramic with a generous 14-oz. capacity, it features a unisex handle engineered to work equally well for both lefties and normal people. Its perfect cylindrical shape guarantees proper flow and [...]

We have a winner!

This may be the first time you’ve ever heard of 2018-19 Hh Scholarship recipient Tessa Vlaar – but it definitely won’t be the last. Trust us: The Colorado native and Gonzaga University alum is going places. How can we be so sure? We asked Tessa what she’d choose for her last meal if she were about to be executed. She began to give very precise instructions for a very particular spaghetti dish until, seeing that our eyes were glazing over, shrugged and said, “It’d be easier if I could just make it myself.” And yet cooking is what relaxes [...]
