The Original Hoptimists
We are extremely proud that the Hoptimists are part of the great Danish design family today: From Kay Bojesen’s monkey to the PH lamp.
What all the family members have in common is that their design lasts. We relaunched the Hoptimist in 2009, and today the figures are hopping around again in Denmark and in the rest of the world.
When we further develop the design, we do so in the spirit of Ehrenreich. And that means producing the Hoptimists in Denmark and remaining true to Ehrenreich’s vision. His basic idea was to draw the Hoptimists using a circle and an ellipse, and the classic and the new generation of figures are based on this idea.
