Swiss designer, Alfredo Häberli, will be a special guest at Domotex, taking place Jan. 14 through 17, 2017, in Hannover, Germany.

Häberli is one of many internationally acclaimed designers, architects and interior designers scheduled to deliver keynote speeches and discuss trends and developments relevant to the flooring sector. 

Working from his studio in Zurich, Switzerland, Häberli creates furniture, lighting and home accessories for a large clientele that includes companies such as Alias, Camper, Georg Jensen, Kvadrat, Iittala, Moroso, Ruckstuhl, Vitra, BMW, Fürstenberg and Parador. His products are characteristically minimalist and demonstrate a responsible, sensitive use of materials and an intuitive understanding of contemporary form and function.

Häberli has also made a name for himself with his imaginative interiors for shops, restaurants and hotels. He created more than 60 products ranging from bathroom hooks to carpets for the interior of the design hotel 25hours in Zurich West. In every room he has placed an object that is linked to the city of Zurich

Häberli’s extensive experience in product design and the scope of his projects and assignments, including floor coverings for various clients, make him the ideal ambassador for Domotex.

“Flooring needs to be an integral part of room design while still making an individual statement. It can be designed in such a way that only a second glance reveals surprising patterns and textures. The impact is the important thing. Design should evoke emotions and reinforce the character of the room,” said Häberli.

Additionally, guided tours geared to practical aspects of the keynote themes of the Innovations@ Domotex Dialogues program and featuring selected innovations will provide creative professionals with a wealth of information and ideas for the contracting sector. Headed by some big names in architecture, design and journalism, the tours will offer an insight into the most exciting innovations of the sector, according to organizers. A selection of new products and developments in the floor coverings industry can also be viewed in the Innovations@Domotex areas in halls 6, 9 and 17.
