The Impossible Garden
Hermès Iguatemi, São Paulo, Brazil
For Hermès Leather Forever exhibition in São Paulo, Brazil we created a colorful garden of optical illusions inspired by a Tropical Modernist villa. The show celebrated the Hermès relationship with leather, the first material worked by the house, so we handbuilt 2 full-size leather flamingos in Brooklyn and shipped them to Brazil. The leather used in the window display was provided by the Hermès Sustainability Department, in cooperation with Petit H, a special Hermès workshop that creates a dialogue between artists and craftspeople to reimagine new products utilizing unused materials.
