House Industries has created a beautifully-crafted type-based window installation for the Hermès flagship store in Tokyo featuring a cantering wooden horse

The windows feature interlocking House Industries letterforms cut from solid cedar wood. A carousel-style horse (detail above) has an in-built mechanism so that the piece moves in a cantering motion. An additional 12 smaller installations feature more letterforms

On a similar note, Louis Vuitton, here in Sydney have recently opened a new flagship store. All the window dislays are created using their own products, but feature all sorts of animals and creatures, mostly native to Australia... It's incredible... Check out the pics...
