PORCELANOSA Group Projects: KRION® at its sweetest in the Happy Pills modular design

The KRION® Solid Surface  compact mineral is a material that is both innovative and modern, just like the designs that it shapes.

We discover a design from the Catalan firm, Happy Pills, a company which offers moments of happiness by combining goodies with positive messages and fun. This is a new sweet shop concept, a modular design which is designed in order not to have a fixed location. Happy Pills thought of PORCELANOSA Group and its acrylic KRION® stone, and in the reputed Tarruella Trenchs Studio office for the design and development.

The result, after a fusion of quality materials and professional backgrounds done by the Tarruella Trenchs Studio, is a modular and transportable store capable of stirring up emotions. The KRION® Solid Surface looks like the perfect skin, machined as a pixel in its purest version: the KRION® 1100 Snow White. In addition, the sweetest version of KRION® is also present in this modular store, through the KRION® 6403 Candy, which perfectly matches the company’s verve and corporate colour.

From the cutting-edge compact mineral, we highlight how this is capable of offering its versatility and innovation to this project. On one hand, its extensive features of strength, durability and easy cleaning ensure that this store is in excellent condition, subject to relocation. On the other hand, KRION® offers Happy Pills its easy on the eyes finishes and models such as fuchsia from 6403 Candy, as well as the possibility to retro-illuminate, giving way to both unique furniture and decoration.

Happy Pills: the pills of happiness

Happy Pills enjoyed considerable support from the PORCELANOSA Group and Tarruella Trenchs Studio for the design of this store, merging quality in materials, professionalism and avant-garde design.
