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.Radically simple.The designer suggested a new series of glassware with an essential idea: have as few glasses as possible, while still being able to serve a full range of fine wines. A true demonstration of thoughtful design, the Essence glasses create a wonderful sense of balance standing next to each other. The stem and base of each glass are the same size, while the tumblers share similar proportions. They are easy to grasp and handle, and we suspect they make fine wines even more enjoyable.
