The best sweet shop in the world?

Designed in Barcelona by studio m, Happy Pills is a modern day collision between confectionary and apothecary. The store, literally wedged between two large buildings, might go unnoticed if not for the acid-pink Red Cross logo above it’s door. Inside, the pharmaceutical design bend is consistent: jellybean filled pill bottles and fully-stocked first aid kits line the shelves, or you can self-medicate by filling up bottles with your candy of choice.

The Happy Pills lineup consists primarily of a cornucopia of exotic jellies, but also runs the gamut of chocolates and chewing gums. Each fix comes packed in gem like little flasks and pill jars, emergency kits, and even a cheeky take on the quotidian pill dispenser, which ensures a healthy daily dose.  The family owned company, with its epicentre on Calle dels Arcs in Barcelona, is a smash sensation in Spain and is constantly evolving. It’s a great lesson in the art of design. You can find some more photos here.
