Making Waves
Ginza Maison Hermès Window display

Making Waves is an installation designed for Ginza Maison Hermès Ginza, Tokyo. It tells about the different states and forms that water can take in a domesticated nature. From the rain to the pavement, up to a big wave, the water meets products and hereby reveals their function : protect, contain, isolate.






In the small window displays, the scenes develops this idea and underlines the use of water in manufacturing process. It questions also the virtual water (or water footprint) used in a production of goods. What amount of water do we use to make a jewel or a piece of leather ? Will this notion become a new way to give added value to our everyday objects?
