Happy Vision

In Europe, over 50 million people are estimated to have a disability and of these over 12 million people have visual impairments.  Furthermore, the number of elderly people with visual impairments caused by age or illness is on the rise.
Moving independently and safely is essential for a better and full life for unsighted or partially sighted people.

One important way of gaining independence is undoubtedly information. Unsighted or partially sighted people who have difficulty entering an unknown space need precise and immediate information that is able to represent the place where they are and the services that it may offer.

Our mission

Happy Vision devises solutions for making these people as independent and safe as possible in their movements, whether at work or at leisure.

The Happy Vision solutions are designed according to DESIGN FOR ALL guidelines: they are designed for the most vulnerable and can therefore be used by everyone else, whatever their degree of ability.
Happy Vision wants to get everybody to think “accessible”, not just doing away with architectural barriers but also cultural barriers to make the world around us safer, more welcoming and "visitable" for everyone.

Happy Vision was founded by Federico Zonca. He was born in Bergamo in 1969 and suffered from retinitis pigmentosa from the age of six. Federico Zonca is qualified in optics and worked in his family's optics company. Despite the disease that made him go blind, he concentrated on developing aids for the partially sighted and unsighted.
Federico set up the Happy Vision company to implement the ideas stemming from his experiences as a visually impaired person and to introduce them to a public as broad as possible.
