nendo: wandering forest of Hermés

japanese design firm nendo has recently developed several window displays for the newly renovated Hermés boutiques in sogo yokohama and takashimaya tokyo department stores located in japan. the forest of trees is segmented throughout the space to create views that seem to appear and disappear into the background. the display tables provide bright hues of color against the branch like figures in white and brown providing depth within the small vitrine. the sensation of contradictions and depth warp the vision of individuals passing by.
