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.

Kathleen from Martinez, CA– Verified Buyer
Love the shape and size of these glasses! They feel great in your hand and look great when you set a pretty table.
Lovely but thin
Sharon from Brooklyn, NY– Verified Buyer
These glasses are very attractive in person but they are not for everyday use. We are rough on glasses and these will definitely break. Also, as a red wine drinker my husband prefers a bigger glass...but that is a weird personal thing I think!
Graceful and elegant
MaryKate from ALBANY, NY– Verified Buyer
These glasses are a pleasure to hold and behold. Well balanced, spare and modern without being severe. My guests always ask where I got them. Splurge a little....buy yourself something to enjoy!
sotheby from old greenwich, CT– Verified Buyer
Amazing quality and and utter joy to use. Easily outclasses other comparably priced stemware. Design is simple yet eye-catching and distinctive, and gets a lot of questions. Only wish that they were a bit more sturdy as the sidewalls are very, very thing. However, this svelte-ness is probably what gives the glasses their sophisticated profile. Would recommend with caveats about durability.

These are beautiful, elegant glasses, especially when bought with the white wine glasses (the shapes play off each other beautifully). We bought four of each and plan to buy another set.
