Once upon a time, on an isolated isle in the Pacific called Easter Island, the brilliant Rapa Nui civilization flourished. The Rapanui language (nowadays spoken fluently by perhaps as few as 800 of the island’s inhabitants), together with its famous stone head sculptures gazing nostalgically into the sky, represent the last vestiges of this culture. We have employed this language to name our objects.
A language, a culture, an ocean: an edifying history of great allegorical import is inscribed on Terra Nation’s objects, which become vehicles for promoting our fundamental beliefs on life. The governing concept is happiness and the idea that we can pursue it through small, practicable, everyday things.
We want to make people happy, because “we believe in happy people!”
