Alfredo Häberli—Verbal Scribbles

30 Years, 30 Questions, 30 Answers. People, Places, Objects—1980–2022

A tribute to the people, places, and objects that have shaped Alfredo Häberli and his understanding of design.
Alfredo Häberliis one of the world’s most widely acclaimed product designers. Major international brands such as BMW, Camper, Georg Jensen, Iittala, Luceplan, Moroso, Schiffini, and Vitra are among his clients, for whom he has designed furniture, lamps, objects, tableware, and even entire interiors. Häberli’s work has been shown in numerous exhibitions throughout Europe and has earned him many awards over the years.

For the first of this book’s two volumes, Häberli invited thirty people from his circle to ask him one question each, which he answers frankly and in good humor. These personalities include fellow designers, architects, critics, journalists, and creative directors such as Stephen Bayley, Tyler Brûlé, Francesca Molteni, and Alice Rawsthorn.

In the second volume, Häberli reflects on his many influences. He tells of inspiring exchanges with colleagues such as Konstantin Grcic, Jasper Morrison, and Patricia Urquiola. In addition, he discusses his encounters with visionary entrepreneurs, and readers can gain a strong sense of the places, locations, and objects that forged his understanding of design through the text and accompanying images.
Beautifully illustrated and thought-provoking, both volumes of Alfredo Häberli—Verbal Scribbles together offer a true tribute to Häberli and his inspirations.
