I’D LIKE TO BUY A VOWEL

Designer with 212box Architecture
Christian Louboutin at Saks Fifth Ave NY NY, Completed 2013

 

This series of shoe displays designed for Louboutin’s Saks Fifth Ave boutique takes a playful spin with the designer heels.  Smoke mirror pyramids stand on end, seeming to balance impossible on their points.  Polished stainless steel frames support this illusion, and hide low-profile lazy-susans at each end, which allow shoppers to rotate the display boxes to view merchandise.  The signature Louboutin L is made into a heel stand on which shoes hang delicately against the mirror surface.
