Happiness by the cup
Happy Cups is a collection of cups that will serve happiness in every season. The iconic cups are colour-coordinated to reflect the respective season. Hand-painted motifs, cheerful sayings, or greetings in creative hand-lettering invite the user to truly enjoy a cup of their favourite beverage.
Sustainable, well thought-out and "Made in Germany"
Important for people who want to give high quality: the Happy Cups distinguish themselves because of their ease to be combined with other items, their environmental friendliness and their durable quality. All cups are produced in Germany – from the design over the raw materials to the packaging. KAHLA sets strict standards for an environmentally-friendly, socially responsible production. For sustainability, all cups can be easily combined with other KAHLA collections.
Spring: fresh new green and flowers
Spring starts with two delicate watercolour flower motifs by KAHLA designer Lisa Keller, who also created the form of the cup. The décor Heyday combines velvet green, aubergine, rosé and magenta in iridescent colour gradients. For Moon Meadow, the designer drew her inspiration from the herbs and flowers she discovered around the factory site in Kahla, Thuringia.
Summer: raspberry ice cream in a cup – why not?
To show a greater seasonal diversity, the KAHLA design team invited external designers to create their personal interpretation of a Happy Cup. Artist Sandy Gessner of Jena, Germany, took up the challenge and designed her version for the summer collection. She combines handwritten notes such as "Lady Boss" and "Hotel Mama" with delicate graphic elements and with rich, solid base colours in orange-yellow and pink on the inside of the cup.
Autumn: a time to rest
The autumn motifs by KAHLA designer Elisabeth Gey come in a stylish black and white. With inscriptions like "Tea and Harmony", "A little Timeout", "Welcome Happiness" and "Me Time", each cup is a loving invitation to do something good for yourself. Once you have found your favourite saying, it can be complemented by a plate or a bowl in graphic patterns from the "Flavoured Moments" décor range.
Warm words for winter and Christmas
KAHLA was able to win illustrator Inga Knopp-Kilpert from Stuttgart, Germany, for the Happy Cups winter collection. Her designs "I love you more than Chocolate", "Baby, it's cold outside" or "Merry Christmas" in many different languages use colourful letters in an unconventional paper-collage look that is complemented by striking icons. Perfect for everyone who wants to give a gift of warm words without appearing overly sentimental.
The designs "Silent Night", "O Christ-mas Tree" and "Joyful Christmas" on the Christmas Happy Cups designed by Elisabeth Gey create the cosiness of a classic Christmas.
