Originally it was the Danish cabinetmaker Hans Gustav Ehrenreich (1917-1984), who designed the cheerful and cute Hoptimists in 1968. The bold colors and round shapes that characterize his figures were very much in tune with the times. Ehrenreich participated in several international exhibitions and received numerous awards for his handicrafts at home and abroad.
The first Hoptimists saw the light of day between 1968-1974 and have been barely seen since. Until 2009, the Danish designer Lotte Steffensen rediscovered her love for these little fellows. After consultation with Ehrenreich’s son Jørn, Lotte and her company Hoptimist revived the famous characters. Since then countless Hoptimists in numerous variations have conjured up a smile on the lips of people all over the world and made them forget the stress of everyday life for a short time.
