Alfredo Häberli

You might know Alfredo Häberli for his Nemea Sideboard which made the blog rounds earlier last year and which we posted about here, but I was browsing through his website again and came across some great older projects. Eine neue Art Schuh was a shoe with interchangeable parts - a front and a back that you could mix and match with other fronts and backs to create different shoes. I'm not crazy about the styles (it was the '90s, after all), but I love the idea.

The other project that I liked a lot won an award from Wallpaper for the Best Shelving System of 2006. I'm not sure how functional it would actually be as a shelving system, but I think it makes for an attractive screen or room divider.
