Selfridges window displays are without doubt the Rolls Royce of window display culture - so it is a great honor for Designersblock to have been asked to commission some of their veterans to design seven windows of the legendary London department store - and even more so for the chosen designers! They were displayed during the London Design Festival and will continue to do so until 25. October 2008 on Duke Street.
The above four examples are the 1:1 scale model of the Concorde engine by PostlerFerguson (they bought the manuals for 5 quid on ebay!), Matthew Plummer Fernandez'Apifera (inspired by comparing the function of window displays to the art of attraction of flowers), (We)Make'sBeryl & Friends recycled lamp shades and Toby Summerskill & Jim Rokos' Kaleidoscope. All of them truly mouth-watering installations that are certainly worth going to Oxford Street for.
Brit Leissler lives and acts between London and Berlin. After receiving a Master degree in product design from the Royal College of Art in London she started her own Shoot the Stylist! design studio. She also works as a design educator for various institutions and founded Punch'n'Cuddle Ltd., producing and distributing her own products.
When taking a break from the design world she writes, sings and composes quirky electronic pop or travels the planet. Brit loves all forms of eccentricity, joins up the dots and aims to get into interesting conversations with all kinds of weird and wonderful people. As a hardcore digital camera gunslinger she shoots everything that moves and grooves. She doesn't eat animals, is hot for cheese, loves the Kensington Squirrels, robotic dance moves and life enhancing ideas.
