Is your glass half-empty or half-full? Inspired by two of his co-workers, Hans Bølling created these two characters who are like night and day, yin and yang, truly exact opposites. Whether you are one or the other, the Optimist and the Pessimist express the possibility of change of your perception, depending on your current state of mind.
