On the other hand, Alfredo Häberli presented at Orgatec the new combinations of Dado for workspaces. Häberli explained that Dado is a very comfortable modular sofa that arises from a precise set of proportions, volumes and color. A neutral piece that is adaptable in any environment. Tradition and innovation are at the heart of my work as a designer, and are the foundations on which Andreu World is based, so it’s a very natural partnership.”
