Founders Laura Murguía and Pavol Sabol opened the studio in autumn 2010 in Prešov, Slovakia after being living and working in Barcelona, Spain more than 12 years. With HAZ, they pretend to become a consultancy in lighting that offers technical and conceptual support to architecture and urbanism projects.

Nevertheless, their interests with regard to the light go much further, since they believe light is a valuable and powerful tool when communicating feelings, emotions and creating atmospheres, across his interaction with materials, textures and color of surfaces.
