Tate Harmer complete RIBA Regent Street Window installation for Hackett
Tate Harmer, in collaboration with Harlequin Design Ltd, have completed a window installation for Hackett as part of the RIBA Regent Street 2014 project.
Based on a traditional timber and ribbon children’s toy, THA proposed a giant moving Jacobs Ladder for Hackett’s two shop windows. Held at one end and woven by an intricate arrangement of interlaced ribbons, the ladder works by rotating the top block- setting off a tumbling effect as each block flips over the next to reveal a hidden image on the reverse side of the ladder. The toppling motion itself creating the visual illusion of a flickering, falling picture; producing two large cascading pixelated collages, a dancing, glittering image to catch the attention of shoppers as they pass by.
