Alfredo Häberli of Zurich designed Empire for Quodes. This Argentine-born designer chose basic geometric shapes and piled them one on top of the other to create interesting patterns. Both the variation and the contours give the furniture a fascinating and visual shape.
Furniture as sculptures, suitable for storing books and exhibiting objects. It is easy to find a space for it and it is extremely practical: books automatically lay on their side; there is no need for book supports anymore! Empire is very decorative, even more when used in repetition.
Empire has been exhibited in the Museum für Gestaltung in Zürich (Switzerland), in the Kölnisches Kunstverein" in Cologne (Germany) and has been published a lot around the world.
