House Industries' wooden horse for Hermès
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
