Mies construes a more present-day, moderate, elegant and versatile lifestyle. The backrest appears to be an open frame from which you can lean out and look out, a proscenium where everyone will be able to imagine and create a whole day at will. “Less is more”: take away means leave some room for the imagination of a Steiner view of life which is well symbolized by the simple shapes of Waldorf dolls, whose aesthetical feature (essential small points instead of eyes and a mouth) allows the child to imagine the toy appearance, by changing its expression according to one’s taste, wishes and mood.
Happy Hour also belongs to the Mies collection which originated as home bar furniture. It represents a product line based on retro style, but the top, which once had a height of 75 cm, has now reached the height of a bar counter, i.e. 110 cm. This furniture made of black walnut wood is composed of two doors, a wooden internal shelf and a folding table which can be used to prepare aperitifs. A single hybrid shape which looks like a ziggurat and hides inside two products, i.e. both a piece of furniture and a table that can be perfectly used for a “happy hour”.
