Japanese designer Tokujin Yoshioka has a new installation set up within Maison Hermes in Japan. Based off a window display he presented in 2004, this new set up features a restructured design with an appearance by a famed Japanese actress. The display can be seen until January 19th, 2010.
“On designing a window-display of Maison Hermès, I intended to express people’s daily ‘movements’ with a suspicion of humor. There are moments when I perceive a hidden presence of a person in the movements born naturally in daily life. I created a design where one can perceive someone behind the scarves as if life were being breathed into them. The window is designed with an image of woman projected on to a monitor. The scarf softly sways in the air in response to the woman’s blow.” – TY
