The Impossible Garden
Hermès Iguatemi, São Paulo, Brazil
Leather flamingos explore a colorful garden of optical illusions inspired by a Tropical Modernist villa. The viewer is transported to a 1960’s sci-fi fantasy where everything has been turned on its head. A playful game unfolds through the flattening of space, forced perspective, and portals that allow interdimensional travel.
The leather used in the window displays 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.
