Sketches of Animals

For this project designed for the French brand Hermès, I have been directly inspired by Pablo Picasso’s abstract paintings and sculptures. Sketches of Animals is a collection of window displays, constructed in cherry wood, which highlight the value of Hermès products by using them to bring life to the different animals. A printed plate is then turned into the eye of a fish, cushions become the scales and a crystal glass the extremity of its antenna. This playful and narrative project has been designed for the stores in Zürich and Geneva on the occasion of the Fall/ Winter 2014 collections.
