"Drawing is taking a line for a walk." -Paul Klee

Cars, spaceships, captain's command chairs at the control panel, a host of references to fantasy boyhood worlds, and emotional triggers to the memories of games played. A wraparound shell, which conforms and protects, a place to relax, rest your head, cut yourself off from the outside world. Designed in 2002, Take a Line For a Walk lounger has kept its innate expressive power. 10 years on, it finds itself upholstered with a zip running the length of its profile, dividing the external from the internal. On the outside it is all precise, orderly geometry; inside, it is softness, bright colors and exuberantly feminine.

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.
Agostino Moroso, with his wife, Diana, founded the Moroso company in 1952 with an artisanal approach to making sofas, armchairs and furnishing accessories. Their iconic designs have propelled them within the upholstered furniture market, with help from a long list of well known designers: Ron Arad, Patricia Urquiola, Ross Lovegrove, Konstantin Grcic, Alfredo Häberli, Toshiyuki Kita, Marcel Wanders and others. Each piece maintains a noticeable Moroso style while representing other cultures as well. Its international outlook has landed Moroso into the MoMA in New York, Le Palais de Tokyo, the Grand Palais in Paris.
