Dialogue on Happiness Design

The definition of happiness might differ from person to person, and it might be impossible to design happiness. But designers can see to it that consideration for fairness and righteousness runs through every detail of their design in order to weave a network that promotes the interests of the public community. On sustainable development, Henry Steiner cheerfully noted that “Classic is always in style”. If designs that can stand the test of time, and thus reduce the waste of resources are the way to go, how can the industry maintain its sustainability to save itself? Never fail to do good even if it is just a small gesture - this might be the ultimate “design brief” for happiness design.

Thus, he took part in events organized by a volunteer group called Friends of Mui Wo Cattle, in which he lent a hand with cleaning up cow dung on the roads and pavements. After cleaning and cooking, cow pies collected are made into paper mosquito coils.
