Smiley & Hoptimist join forces in creating a unique and playful figurine bound to bring a smile into the workplace or home.

In a three year deal beginning with distribution across Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Holland, Belgium, Spain, France & USA; and a trade launch at renowned Paris design trade show Maison&Objet.

Smiley is now the recognized symbol of happiness across the planet; the team behind Hoptimist wanted to continue the spirit or sharing simple happiness with others. The cheerful, sweet Hoptimists were originally designed by Danish cabinetmaker Hans Gustav Ehrenreich. Hoptimists are all about smiles – and a surplus of energy; springy little characters who light up the floor.

As Hoptimist say “ ‘most smiles start with another smile’ so our collaboration is a match made in heaven… double the fun!”.

Keep Smilin’
