Blurry Vitrine

The project which I commissioned to design and build vitrine models.

In this project, I used steel wire with the thickness of 2,8 mm to create a blur and not sharp look for the boutique vitrine which normally is shiny, bright and sharp. On the other hand, this material gave me the opportunity to create the surreal models with extraordinary shadows. The shadows were part of vitrine decoration which is not relevant in a typical vitrine decoration, most of the time the vitrines are empty of shadows.

Lio boutique, Tehran.
