The April table set was designed by Swiss designer Alfredo Häberli in 2012. The massive wooden base is harmoniously combined with the table top by traditional wooden joinery.
The tables are made of different wood species: birch, ash and oak. They are a natural combination together, but also bring out the different characteristics of the wood material and the contrasting forms of the products.
In 2012 Nikari asked twelve designers or design studios to give their response to Nikari’s design philosophy in the form of a product. The project was called Project 2012 Designs for Nature: Nikari cooperates with WWF Finland and part of the sales price is donated to protecting rainforests and forests globally.

Acclaimed designer Alfredo Häberli has created a collection of upholstery fabrics for Kvadrat, made from Trevira CS featuring three innovative designs, which stand out for their elegance and vibrant colours: Highfield 2, Greenfield and Plot. The sophisticated colour palettes of the collection share many colours, several of which reveal intriguing nuances when given a second look. They are composed of a combination of subtle, natural shades, such as beige, and highlight hues, such as China red. All the colours for the fabrics are created by combining two different tones, with the exception of the red and black colour settings. Alfredo Häberli: ‘It was the aim to make fabrics using two different coloured yarns. This method creates ‘new’ colours with very different and appealing characters.’ The designs also share other characteristics. For instance, Highfield 2 and Greenfield feature intriguing organic patterns, which reveal subtle details and hidden depths as the viewer gets closer. Furthermore, the top layer of both designs is made from Plot. As a result, all three fabrics can easily be combined to eye-catching effect. However, whilst the designs have a number of attributes in common, and complement each other well, each has an unmistakably individual expression. All are suitable for both residential and contract usage.
