The Hoptimist originated in 1968 when furniture designer Gustav Ehrenreich decided that the world needed cheering up. He wanted to put the smile back on people’s faces so created the must-have happy-maker for every Danish home. He carried on producing Hoptimists until 1974.
The smiley, springy characters were given a new lease on life in 2009 when Danish fashion designer Lotte Steffensen decided that the recession-hit country was in need of another dose of Hoptimism. She contacted Gustav’s son and asked for the rights to start producing the Hoptimist again. He gave his blessing and today, nearly every Danish home and office desk has its own Hoptimist.
"Hoptimists are a little reminder to smile, every time you see them” says Lotte.
