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.

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.

I havent had a chance to use it or put it to the test but out of the box it looks just as described and is just what I was expecting. Based on that alone .... 5 stars!
Fantastic serving dish!

Perfect serving dish for baked foods as well as for un baked items.

This is fantastic bowl. The construction feels very sturdy and the glazing is lovely. The colors are bright and the stripes are very even. I am enjoying this piece so much I may order some others in this line.
Bright and cheery bowl

I use this as a fruit bowl. Looks great with fruit in it and looks great empty. No need to put it in the cupboard because it looks so nice out.
Great pop of (multi) color
Alison from Washington, DC– Verified Buyer
This bowl was a little smaller than I had imagined, but it provides a great pop of (multi) color, and goes well with the dessert bowls by the same manufacturer.
Splash of Color
Jack J from Warsaw, IN– Verified Buyer
Nice clean lines, well made but not made in Finland like websites says, Finnish company but manufactured in Indonisia (per label on bottom of bowl)
Darlene from Dayton, TN– Verified Buyer
We are remodeling our basement using a retro look. The bowl is great quality and the fun colors blend right in with the mid century colors, but it also looked great on the table upstairs where we use more traditional colors.
Very nice serving bowl
Boston Dad from Boston, MA– Top 1000 Reviewer
The bowl looks great, is deep enough to hold a godo amount, but not too deep. I like it a lot and it matches other Iittala items if you want the design carried through.
Frederic Tolmie from Terrace BC
But it is not worth the price. The photography of the product is great, but lets face it... you don't sit there and stare at your bowls at eye level. And so they're not that great when you take them out of the box for what you pay for them.
