Alfredo Häberli grew up with a family that was in the restaurant business in Buenos Aires, so this Zurich-based designer under-stands the importance of getting the details of entertaining right from the very start. In 2001, Häberli created the Essence wine glass collection for Iittala.
The same can now be said for the new beer glass that sits in perfect harmony with its wine counterparts. With the rise in popularity of crafted and traditional beers and ales, it was time to launch a new Essence shape to accommodate this exciting new trend.
The beer glass has the signature Essence stem that positions itself an elegant step above more standard beer glasses, while the vessel is designed to make pouring and drinking beer an enjoyable, sensuous experience. 

Alfredo Häberli was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1964. Today, he is an internationally established designer based in Zurich. Alfredo Häberli manages to unite tradition with innovation, joy and energy in his designs. He works with companies such as Alias, Asplund, Bally, Cappellini, Camper, Driade, iittala, Kvadrat, Luceplan, Moroso, Offecct, Thonet and Volvo.


What started as a glass factory in the small village of Iittala, Finland in 1881, today represents several generations of Scandinavian design icons made in both glass, ceramics and stainless steel. The international breakthrough for Iittala came in the early 1950s with designs by Tapio Wirkkala and Timo Sarpaneva. Key pieces in the collection include the Alvar Aalto vases and Aino Aalto glassware, Kaj Franck glassware and ceramics, Oiva Toika mouth blown Birds and Antonio Citterio kitchenware. Today, Iittala is a leading Scandinavian design brand.
