ALFREDO Aquamarine, 6. pcs.

Kids are born with boundless imagination. The best toys encourage this imagination to grow, introducing them to the limitless possibilities of playtime, storytelling and wonder. Alfredo Häberli’s underwater animals were created with this philosophy in mind. The adorable set of instantly recognisable creatures (an octopus, whale, turtle, dolphin, seal and fish)
are lovingly crafted out of smooth oak – though the fish is aluminium for an unexpected contrast – that will last forever. All animals can be stacked up and arranged in endless ways, giving kids hours – and years – of under-the-sea amusement.
They are the perfect gift when celebrating the littlest people. Not a puzzle, but puzzle-like, they encourage kids to try new things, explore and probably ask a million questions about aquatic life too. Each animal has its own unique expression and when they come together, they create a perfectly balanced universe between fantasy and reality.

Designer: Alfredo Häberli

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, Camper, Georg Jensen, Iittala, Kvadrat, Luceplan, Moroso, 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. Alfredo Häberli's work and design have been shown in numerous exhibitions throughout Europe and he has received many awards for his work during the past 16 years.

 A personal monograph «Alfredo Häberli - Sketching My Own Landscape» was published by Frame Publishers in Amsterdam and in October 2006 he was guest of honour at the 20th Biennale of Design in Kortrijk, Belgium. In this context the book «Alfredo Häberli Design Live» with photos of some of Switzerland’s most influential Artists, interpreting Alfredo Häberlis work, was released and published by Birkhäuser. With his own retrospective exhibition «SurroundThings» in 2008 at the Museum für Gestaltung Zürich, for which he was responsible for numerous exhibitions since 1988, a personal dream came true.

He was awarded by A&W magazine (Architektur & Wohnen) as the «Designer of the Year 2009» and honoured with a monograph exhibition on the occasion of the international furniture fair - imm cologne. His collection for Georg Jensen has so far been honoured with the following prestigious awards:

FORMLAND Design Award 2011

WALLPAPER Design Award 2012

BO BEDRE Design Award 2012
