Stephen Johnson designed a mega large (ø70cm), exact copy of a shiny giftbox bow to make us happy! His ‘Happy Happy’ bows, dating from 2010, have been relaunched in 2017 featuring a lighting unit, made in mirror polished aluminum in four colours. The Happy lights are made to order.
And, what a fun coincidence (is it?): Maison Margiela has bags in the same shape, The MM6 ‘Mirror gift bow shoulder bag’ is also taller than the real shiny paper shiny bows, but way smaller than Stephen Johnson’s lamps. If you want to buy the bag go to farfetch for the lilac one, silver is still on stock at margiela.com.
A word from Stephen Johnson
“Johnson first developed Happy to underline how design can fulfil our psychological, as well as our physical needs. The purpose of Happy is not to enable or assist any physical action like a spoon for eating or a hammer for hitting, it is to affect our mood. Or to put it another way, Happy is a product designed to make you happy… and it’s as simple as that!”
