Catch your Happiness
Happiness Camp 2023
Concept | Installation Art
Happiness Camp is Europe’s largest corporate happiness conference, providing a full-day experience centered around fostering joy and well-being in the workplace.
As part of the event, Bavaroise was invited by Lionesa to create an installation art in collaboration with Vicoustic, a provider of soundproof acoustic cabins. Reimagining the interior of Vicbooth to align with the event’s mission, the goal was to offer a surreal, immersive experience, enhanced by the play of mirror reflections within the space.
While we often look to the future for happiness or find solace in past memories, this installation reminds us that happiness exists in the everyday, in the small gestures that often go unnoticed.
We’ve chosen the cricket cage, a nostalgic toy still made in Portugal, as the focal object. It resonates with generations aged 25 to 60, evoking a time when life was simpler, and joy was abundant.
The challenge is to be present, to catch those fleeting moments of joy before they slip away. Hence, the concept ‘CATCH YOUR HAPPINESS’ encourages us to hold onto our dreams and savour the magic in the mundane.
Enhanced with small LEDs, the intricately designed, colourful cricket cages cast a spellbinding play of light, adding an extra layer of enchantment to the space.
