The cheerful & sweet Hoptimists

Date: 11 Dec 2012

The cheerful, sweet Hoptimists were originally designed by Danish cabinetmaker Hans Gustav Ehrenreich (1917-1984) in 1968. In keeping with the spirit of the day, his figures were characterised by their bright colours and rounded shapes. Ehrenreich participated at several international exhibitions, receiving many honours for his craftsmanship both at home in Denmark and abroad. In 2009, designer Lotte Steffensen and the Hoptimist company relaunched the world-famous Hoptimists, in consultation with Ehrenreich’s son Jørn Ehrenreich.

Hoptimists make people smile, inject life and give people the urge to do something. Most smiles start with another smile. Hoptimists smile at you and wait for your response: maybe a smile, perhaps a slight tap to get the figure moving. They repay you by bouncing up and down, powered by surplus energy. Just as you knew they would – just as they do every time.
