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.
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.
Love the design.

They are stunning in person but the are lighter than i expect. Would recommend if you want to add some color on your table.
Perfect everyday dishes
Pamela from Annapolis, MD– Verified Buyer
I've been using Origo Orange as my everyday dishes for about 7 years. They sport a timeless design. And they're not fragile in the least. In all this time, I've never broken a dish, and they still look brand new.

The iittala Origo plates are amazing. I have them in orange and love the fun colors. They put a smile on my face every time I use them.

Best dishes ever. Cheery and well made. Worth every penny!
Love the dishes
Gabrielle Arwadi from Houston, Texas– Verified Buyer
My only complaint about this dish set is that there isn't a serving platter, only bowls, and no pasta bowl/plate. Would love to know if the colors in the teems design coordinate b/c I would be likely to mix and match. Didn't buy the mugs/ tumblers because we want handles.
I LOVE my new dishes!
Stephanie Greenberg from Saint Louis, MO– Verified Buyer
I love my new dishes! They are even prettier in person and set a beautiful table. Great quality! I am thrilled with my purchase!
Jeremy C from Beavercreek, OH
Very nice, quality dishes done by iittala! I was reluctant to get dinnerware that had a lot of white in it (seems so boring to me). But I find it to be ok. The dinnerware feels great in your hands and is aesthetically pleasing with the design and colors!
One of my favorite purchases!
the Boys from Atlanta
Found these on a trip to Amsterdam and fell in love with the design. Wasn't sure at first how they'd hold up, but they are great for everyday use, do great in the dishwasher, and look awesome when you mix/match with other iittala dinnerware. Can be casual or dressed up.
