Hermès is under the microscope! The fashion house’s display offers an unorthodox perspective on nature


Luxury brand Hermès’ annual theme “nature at full gallop” prompted Torafu Architects to build a window display inspired by what you might see under a microscope. The naked human eye is incapable of viewing and appreciating the tiny cells that make up living things, so Torafu blew up the concept and adorned the windows of 22 stores in Japan with the concept.

PVC pipes were used to mimic the complex look of cells found in various plants. On these pipes hang Hermès accessories including bags, scarves, hats and footwear.
