Modern, simple, essential

Alfredo Häberli had a radically simple idea to create a series that had as few glasses as possible while still being able to serve a full range of fine wines. Believing that simple forms enhance the enjoyment of wine, Essence glassware is modern and minimal with a thin lip for sipping which is rare in lead-free glass. 
 
The stems and bases are identical which express a remarkable sense of balance when the glassware is placed side by side. Sensually pleasing to grasp and handle, Essence makes fine wines even more enjoyable. Essence is among the most highly acclaimed glassware in the world, and won the iF Award and Les Découvertes Award.

Changing archetypal forms of 
everyday objects to fit our time.

The human being is the starting point of Häberli’s design process. His objects and structures are designed to be used. He is unprejudiced and inventive in his observation of the actual situation in which an object is used and does not create form for the sake of it. Based on his insights, he designs changes to the archetypes of objects that have developed through the times, which makes the everyday objects around people fit this time and the situation they are used in precisely.

Easy simplicity and balance to enhance the celebrations of joyous moments.
