Taking inspiration from their travels, Happy + Co are a new interiors brand that looks at things a little differently. As well as making sure that their pieces are that little bit different, for each product they sell, 10% of profits are invested into the Happy + Co Farm in Cambodia. Nice.
Whilst wandering the aisles at 100% Design we stumbled across an intriguing little hut; a seaside themed wendy house if you will. This playful stand at D96 showcases the talents of the team at Creative Trust, an innovative company based in Kent who provide quirky design solutions to fit any brief.
The Creative Trust team includes graphic & product designers, illustrators, movie makers, photographers and 3D model makers – all of whom are on hand to bring even the most hair-brained of ideas to life.
Their stand at this years 100% design is a cute little house made entirely of cardboard and completely illustrated by hand. The interior is jam packed with a quirky array of cardboard furniture, from cardboard frames and chairs, to a full size working cardboard piano. This enchanting little abode is an undeniably impressive achievement and certainly proves the Creative Trust’s claim; “We like to think there’s nothing we can’t produce or illustrate on.”
In recognition of this feat, the stand was awarded the coveted Blueprint prize for Best Exhibition Design at this year’s show.
