About the Designer

Alfredo Häberli

Alfredo Häberli Argentina (1969 - )

Alfredo Häberli was born in Buenos Aires in Argentina in 1964, but moved to Switzerland in 1977, where he trained as an industrial designer at the Höhere Schule für Gestaltung in Zürich, graduating in 1991. Since 1993 he has had his own design studio, with his most famous works being the stripy porcelain he designed for the Finnish company Iitalla, furniture for Mosors and furnishings for stores such as the Camper store in Paris and the Kvadrat showroom in Milan. Over the last 17 years, Alfredo Häberli Design Development has become a prestigious international design studio. Mr. Häberli has taught at design schools throughout Europe and the United States, and has participated at a host of exhibitions worldwide. He has also received a number of prestigious awards for his work. Alfredo Häberli finds inspiration for his elegant, minimalist designs in everyday life – gathering impressions into themes so he can always draw on them if he suddenly finds a use for them in a new context. His products are so ingeniously simple, they can all be described in just a few phrases. One method he uses is to keep observing his work again and again throughout the process: "Observing is the most beautiful way to think. I am constantly discovering new things in a single object," he says about his work.

Can't Stop Using

Lauren from Washington, DC– Verified Buyer

I thought we would only use these for special occasions, but find we use them every day. I like the heavy base. The wash well in dishwasher and are just the right size for a variety of beverages including mixed cocktails.

Not as small as they look

John from Astoria, NY– Verified Buyer

I love this brand, they make great quality products with a timeless style. They look small but they hold a good amount of liquid in them and make a perfect tumbler.
