“Are you happy?”

It’s a simple question, yet one that’s difficult to ask. The pursuit of happiness is one of the fundamental and eternal drives of human existence. The presence or absence of happiness has a direct impact on our quality and outlook of life; Aristotle even went so far as to proclaim that eudaimonia—the ancient Greek concept of living and doing well—is the highest human good and therefore should be the goal of every human being.

Not only do happy people perform better at work, exhibit more creativity and enjoy better health, their happiness also boost the development of themselves and their communities. In recent years, many designers, inspired by the psychology of positive thinking, have tried to create a connection between their work and happiness, and “Delight Design” is a showcase of the distillation of such creative endeavours. In the exhibition, designers explore the subject from the aspects of “sense”, “mind”, “ideology” and “social”, and share their thoughts on how to build a more positive and delightful world. We invite you to rediscover the power of design outside of its “utilitarian” purposes and to learn how good design can quietly irrigate our hearts and offer us a holistic, sustainable sense of wellbeing. In these tumultuous times, let design help close the distance between you and your happiness.

「你快樂嗎?」

它是一個如此基本,又難以宣之於口的問候。它是我們時刻共處的感覺,也是人存於世最恆久而根本的詰問。快樂與否,不但直接影響我們每日的生活品質和能量,古希臘哲學家亞里士多德更認為,幸福(eudaimonia)本身就是人所追求的目標。

快樂的人不但在工作、創意和健康領域有著更佳表現,更有助促進個人和群體發展。近年不少設計師均嘗試連結快樂和設計,以「正向思維和行為」作為設計的精神內涵——不管是感官的觸動(sense)、對細緻需求的照顧(mind)、普世價值觀的追求(ideology),還是追求社會創新的動力(social),「給快樂的設計」展覽向大眾展示經設計思維過濾後,設計界對一個更正面而快樂世界的想法和追求。我們誠邀你在接下來的展覽,重新認識設計在「功能」以外的角色,透過這圍繞快樂的四大設計面向,看設計如何默默灌溉一種全面而可持續的幸福感,在這個動盪不安的世道中,拉近人與快樂之間的距離。
