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.These striped patterns provide a colorful accent to any kind of setting. An eye-catching décor with defined structure and rhythm brightens up any occasion. Origo is easily combinable with other tableware because of its wide spectrum of colors. Its simple form is a perfect example of lasting design.

iittala Origo Dinnerware Collection
Beautiful dinnerware, if...
Carmody from Billings, MT– Verified Buyer
... if you're looking for pastels. The brown color choice is more like pastel. Colors on this website appear to be different than in real life. I ultimately ended up returning the whole set because the color was absolutely not what I was expecting. Other than that, these seem to be beautiful, versatile, sturdy dishes. I'm going to order one piece from the next set I try to buy, to be sure the color is right, and then order the rest upon approval.

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.
Beautiful bowl for many uses
Patricia from Palm Springs, CA– Verified Buyer
I have two smaller bowls in this pattern that I use to serve dips, nuts, etc. This larger bowl is just as lovely and will be perfect for salads, vegetable sides, etc. The pattern is bright and colorful and fits with my modern decor.
Found my perfect plate!
Theresa from Jersey City, NJ– Verified Buyer
I just received the dinner plate I have been waiting for. I bought 4. I love the colors and simple design. Delivery was right quick (2 or 3 days). If they have small salad plates (6 or 7 inches wide) with the same pattern, I will buy them. I was lucky to find them as they usually sell out.
Way cool - Way modern & stylish

MyOrigo salad plates arrived really fas like 2 or 3 days after I placed the order. They were packed very securely. I'm very satisfied with the good service I receive when ordering from allmodern. Love all their cool products.
Simple and Nice
Priyanka from Ashburn, VA– Verified Buyer
I liked the simplicity and the vibrant colors in the dinner plates. I was happy with the quality and plates are light weight too. I was just a little disappointed by the size of the Origo bowl and the dessert bowl. Wished the Origo bowl was a little bigger so that it could be used for serving curries. I think it would have been perfect if they had a bowl of a size in between their serving bowl and the origo bowl.

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 this pattern
Suzanne from Brockton, MA– Verified Buyer
I'd been wanting more of these bowls for a long time. Already had two. Bought two more and love them.
great, stylish bowls.
AAA from AAA– Verified Buyer
I bought it mainly for the looks. Wanted to please the wife. Would have been nicer if they made the bowls wider (a little bit bigger) but it is ok in its current size (I guess Europeans eat less than us in the states).
Is it crazy to love a coffee mug this much?
Alyson from Brooklyn, NY– Verified Buyer
I'm a huge fan of this pattern; expensive? Heck yeah but worth every penny- It definitely makes my coffee taste better every morning (and my neighbor loves it too).
