”The idea was to create several abstract sculptures, with an open function. These abstract servants function in a corridor, at the entrance, in the living-, bed- and bathroom as a display for any possible object or simply as a stool, a bench or a side table. The challenge is to accept the open character and the undefined primary use of the pieces and embrace their whole presence and standout carpentry. The striped back design creates space for the material and the craftsmen behind Nikari to shine.” Alfredo Häberli, Designer


Alfredo Häberli

Was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1964. He moved to Switzerland in 1977 and graduated 1991 with distinction in Industrial Design at the Höhere Schule für Gestaltung in Zurich. Today, he is an internationally established designer based in Zurich and is working for some of the leading companies of the international design industry such as Alias, BD Barcelona, BMW, Camper, FSB, Georg Jensen, Iittala, Kvadrat, Luceplan, Moroso, Nikari, Schiffini and Vitra. He manages to unite tradition with innovation, joy and energy in his designs and his work is strongly influenced by his early childhood in Argentina as well as his curiousness and studies in everyday life. The results are works with a strong expression and emotionality.
