Born in 1964 in Buenos Aires, Alfredo Häberli studied industrial design at the Zürcher Hochschule für Gestaltung (which is now the Zurich University of the Arts, ZHdK). After completing his studies, in 1991 he founded his first design studio. Since 1999, he has been trading as Alfredo Häberli Designdevelopment, based in Zurich, and enjoys international success.
He is now one of the world's most sought-after designers. His projects include exhibition concepts, interior and furniture design and design drafts, all of which unite tradition, innovation, joy and energy. In 2014 he received the "Grand Prix Design”, a Swiss design award presented by the Federal Office of Culture. In 2019, he was a member of the jury for the Design Prize Switzerland and, in 2020, for the Frame Award.
