Hermés window display by Torafu Architects, Tokyo

December 28th, 2012 by retail design blog

We designed the shop windows for ‘8cm Tie” at Hémes boutique in Marunouchi and Hilton plaza. Like the picture book story of ‘Swimmy’, we thought about how we can gather many individual thin ties together to create the shape of a large tie as well as a house. We also included ties made from felt to accent the colorful image of this tie series.

In the small display windows we set up the ties upside down to resemble the shapes of houses, and little worlds are created around the ties as we placed miniature objects placed around it. We maximized the tie’s characteristic shape and reconsidered it in a different scale in order to stage these windows to create new ways to view the tie.

    Amazing …. I want to add one thing more in this article that is packaging of Ties. Tie boxes are accessible in
    unique and classy styles. These boxes have a beautiful look to grab the attention of customers. Generally, tie
    packaging boxes contain window from which customers can see the tie present within. These boxes contain information
    regarding the product. These boxes are very light in weight and functional.
