About the Designer
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.

I bought this set for my daughters as a surprise wedding gift. She loves it. She had purchases several small bowls from this set on our trip to the Scandinavian countries over 10 yeas ago. The bonus was to learn about Alfred Haberli the designer and his reasons for this creation. I was so pleased to find it available from you.

These brightly-colored but still tasteful containers are at your service for a wide variety of uses. I used them for gellato but they would work equally well for berries and perhaps even a summery soup. Love them. Will use them a great deal.
Great pop of (multi) color!
Alison from Washington, DC – Verified Buyer
I love these little bowls. Good quality, nice designer look. Display on the kitchen shelf for a great pop of (multi) color!
Nice size bowl for family meals.

We are adding this to the family dishes. The bowls are cheerful and sturdy. They are a good size for serving children at meals, for desserts and handy for small sides.

The colors were just as I expected. This is high quality and the online description was fitting. I would recommend this to anyone looking for something similar.
Soon to be a classic design
David from Cambridge, MA – Verified Buyer– Top 1000 Reviewer
I'm not sure how long it takes to become a design classic -- but I'd say the iittala Origo line is well on its way. This is a bowl that makes people happy even when the food is bad.
Frederic Tolmie from Terrace BC
However, I still use these more than I expected. They're everday, cute... but still way too expensive... I only ordered them because I wanted the tumblers... but two months later I still don't have the tumblers.
