Melbourne International Design Week to light up Downtown Design

Downtown Design

Downtown Design will open its doors for the third time from 27 – 30 October 2015 and it will be hosted for the first time at the Dubai Design District (d3) in a purpose-built venue that will present 90 brands.

Downtown Design exhibitor Christopher Boots, promoted by Melbourne International Design Week, was commissioned by Hermès to create his unique Metamorphosis installation in the window of their New York flagship. Inspired by patterns and structures found in organic living elements and minerals, the artistic crystalline installation brought magic and sparkle to the store during this past winter season.

Christopher combined traditional holiday colours with unpolished crystals and geometric lighting structures, giving the display a contemporary look, each element combining to create a balance between natural forms and materiality.

“Boots managed to successfully elevate holiday imagery from common winter tropes to elegant, refined scenery­—a metamorphosis indeed.” -Whitewall Magazine
