Design Alfredo Haberli, 2001
Made in Finland by Iittala

Radically simple. Alfredo Haberli 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.

The Essence glasses have become a true demonstration of thoughtful design. Standing next to each other, they create a wonderful sense of balance. This is due to the fact that 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.

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.
