Happy Pills

Mary Poppins had it right. A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down. Even better, what if the sugar is the medicine.

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.

My personal fave are the handy "morning-afternoon-night" pill holders, just to make sure your sugar-toothing stays on schedule.
