Blooming marvellous: Display makes waves at Topshop

19.12.2013 Topshop : Neon : Window Display

London – London-based design practice NEON has installed a kinetic window display in Topshop’s Oxford Circus store.

The Bloom installation is made from 159 petals mounted on computer-controlled rods that rise and fall to mimic the petals of a cherry blossom as it blooms. The petals are white on top, while the underside is decorated with a bold pink graphic. As the petals move, they create a wave of changing colour.

The computer-controlled rods have been programmed to perform various sequences, encouraging shoppers to stop and watch the installation.
