AHA is an emerging design studio based on storytelling, sustainability, and joy.
AHA’s provides a multidisciplinary design approach for her clients including interior design, product design and creative direction. In collaboration with the best professionals, suppliers and craftsman, the studio takes on projects from concept development till implementation.
AHA’s versatile portfolio includes hotel interiors, private commissions (Budapest Shelf Design), exhibition designs (Identity Design, Cromwell Place), set designs (Ziguzajg), retail experiences (Te fit-Tazza Showroom) and furniture collections (Collezione L!Puff).
Understanding the environmental damage that has been done to our planet, AHA fights for sustainability and a circular economy. We design and produce furniture made of sustainable materials, including our 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.
I am Anna Horvath, a Hungarian-born narrative designer and architect, the founder of AHA. As I was always passionate about storytelling, I graduated with an MA in Narrative Environments from Central Saint Martins - University of the Arts London. An architecture degree provides a solid foundation for my spatial design projects.
I have participated in numerous design and architecture projects from small to large scale structures in London, Berlin, Lisbon, Budapest, and Malta. My 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.
My first furniture collection: Collezione L!Puff has been launched during the Paris Design Week and SORĠI ( my second collection) have been selected to represent Malta for ECO Solidarity at WantedDesign Manhattan in 2022.
SORĠI has also been named ‘the best creative start-up’ of Malta.
