Design Alfredo Haberli, 1999
Made in Sweden by Rorstrand-iittala

Sign of the times. Design has to be brave, to take a stand. There is no way of telling, at the moment of creation, whether what you have made will be successful or not. And remember, successful to Iittala means the object doesn't fail and it stands the test of everyday use over a long time.

Origo immediately caught the attention of the world. Orange, pink, blue or brown, it is easy to find favorites amongst the color combinations and combine them with our other dishes.

Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Alfredo Haberli is an internationally established designer based in Zurich. In his designs, Haberli manages to unite tradition with innovation, joy and energy. His upbringing in a family of hoteliers and restaurant people has inspired and showed him the way in his work. Award winning design: iF Design Award 2002 (Germany), Excellent Swedish Design Award (Utmarkt svensk form) 2001 (Sweden), Zakka of The Year 2001 (Japan).

Alfredo Haberli

Alfredo Haberli (b. 1964) of Buenos Aires is now based in Zurich. He earned a degree in Industrial Design at the Higher School of Design in 1991. He then co-opened a studio with Cristophe Marchand until 1999, when he opened his own studio, Haberli Design Development. His clients include: Alias, Camper, Iittala, Kvadrat, Luceplan, Moroso,Ruckstuhl , Schiffini and Volvo. Haberli primarily designs everyday home furnishings. His striped, colorful Origo series from 1999 quickly became a popular seller and remains highly recognizable. With the series and in all of his works, Haberli manages to combine tradition with innovation, joy, and energy. He believes “observation is the best form of thinking” and the results yield everyday objects that are practical and easily paired with one another.
What started as a glass factory in Iittala, Finland, now celebrates generations of essential objects that are made to enrich people’s everyday lives. Iittala believes objects should be distinctive, combinable and multi-functional, with lasting design that allows for individual use and expression. The progressive philosophy of design heroes, Kaj Franck and Alvar Aalto, still inspires to keep Iittala forever relevant. Iittala creates beautiful objects... timeless design that will never be thrown away.
