Triangular Grid

Creating a world of art to celebrate the launch of a new retail destination. For the official opening of the Kalverpassage in Amsterdam, which included the unveiling of the spectacular light artwork by Sigrid Calon, we designed a special pop-up gallery, a publication, and exclusive items such as bespoke scarves. All completely in line with the style of the artwork: sleek, geometric and colourful.

Sigrid Calon

Exploring the limits and possibilities of her iconic triangular grid was the starting point for the creation of a physical space and additional collateral. From conceptual and creative development through to production, the project included the editorial design for a limited-edition publication, tote bags and silk scarves featuring Sigrid’s iconic work.

A bold, graphic and colourful pop-up space brings Sigrid’s geometric world together into one colourful journey.

Moments of Magnification

Mesmerising an audience by magnifying beauty. A dramatic window installation celebrates the iconic design, elegant details and stunning beauty of the Cartier Love Bracelet, by magnifying its details in an extraordinarily crafted and luxurious way. Fine and studded with its characterising screw motif, the window contrasts the delicate design and refinement of the bracelet with the volume of the space.

Set against a stage in Cartier’s opulent red, a curtained backdrop pulls back to play the brand’s campaign film as the globes sparkle in the foreground. This sparkle was key – a carefully choreographed play on light between viewer, space, and product.

The design features three rotating ‘globes’ containing LOVE bracelets, each comprised of 12 magnifying glasses and assembled using traditional gold-smith techniques – breathing into the window the same level of craftsmanship as in the bracelets themselves. When approached by passers-by, the deep red curtains automatically open and disclose the image of the renowned Cartier Panther.

A Classic Remastered

Santos de Cartier

Creating a theatrical centrepiece. The rich heritage of the famous Santos watch plays out in a visual narrative, centred around the product. From an outline of the iconic watch, to an iconic, luxurious and layered story-telling window with room for variation and scalability. Strong composition, rigid use of colour, and hypnotising movement result in an impactful window display with stopping power.

The installation is inspired by the original Santos airplane. A tapered clean steel stage decorated with rivets hinting back to aviation aesthetics

draws your attention into the centre of the window, where a large rotating propeller functions as a dramatic backdrop for the product.

The Windows Are
Watching You

During the 2012 Olympic games in London, Nike launched a series of revolutionary new products in Selfridges. Each of the eight window concepts elevated the main characteristics of the product into engaging interactive and/or kinetic art installations, inspiring fans to visit Nike+ House of Innovation at Selfridges.

Nike+ Fuelband — An artistic representation of the Nike+ FuelBand allowed passers-by to control a waveform, created by 24 rows of 4 balls hanging from custom-made metal rods.

Nike Flyknit — An interpretation of the knitting process as a kinetic sculpture, showcasing the lightness and adaptability of the Flyknit product. The waveform of the reflective wires varies as spinning motors connected to each wire change speed.

Nike Medal Stand — By surrounding the highly reflective Nike Medal Stand Jacket with a matrix of 74 strobe lights capable of displaying animated

bitmap sequences, the product is illuminated in a visually stunning way, referring to the flashing cameras at award ceremonies.

Nike Sportswear — With 55 individually-controlled servo motors, a vintage solari-style scoreboard was transformed into a kinetic installation. As people walk past, the letters and numbers flick round to reveal the two quotes on the back and front of the flaps as well as the Nike Sportswear Collection behind the flaps.

Nike LunarGlide+ 4 — Showcasing the dynamic support of the new and improved Nike LunarGlide+ 4, the sole is extruded into a giant kinetic foam sculpture. Through the use of a computer-controlled linear actuator, the model slowly moves back and forth to emphasise the adaptability of the foam.

Nike+ Fuelband (Oxford street) — The Union Jack became a three-dimensional interactive installation. Mimicking the basic concept of the Nike+ FuelBand, the movement of people in front of the window causes LED tiles to fade from red to green. The more movement, the greener the installation.

Nike Selfridges

Nike+ Lunar ESP — By employing custom-created software, two kinects and a hi-resolution camera, passers-by could experience Nike+ ESP technology featured in the Lunar+ ESP shoes, without actually wearing the product. Jump high, get the data, replay the movie, and save it to the gallery.
