We were tasked to deliver a visually arresting, product-inspired, Harrods’ window display to charm the beauty fans of Knightsbridge, unveiling a message that would luxuriantly highlight Ultimune’s remarkable performance and contribution to the skincare industry.

A twilight sensation


Using the design concept from Shiseido’s design partner, we technically developed and installed a full kit of parts to offer an enhanced sense of depth. Multi-layered and multi-tonal, we refined this premium window design, centred around Shiseido’s No. 1 serum, to give Ultimune the platform that it deserves.


Contrasting against Harrods’ famous grey marble exterior, the red-to-pink gradient colour palette creates the perfect setting for Shiseido’s directive. Further pronounced by asymmetrical edge-lit panels and an illuminated central factice with life-like mirrored lid, this installation elegantly disperses light out into the streets of London, drawing passers-by straight to the heart of the design: Ultimune.

Ideas made possible.
