Products from the store and weights displaying information are suspended on ropes and pulleys, linked together.
Moving one item causes another to change position.
Called Interaction, the project is second in a series of four temporary installations by UXUS at the H&M headquarters.
Here's some more information from UXUS:
UXUS followed up the Home Reflections presentation with “Interaction”, an installation celebrating H&M Home’s transition from an online and catalogue retailer, to a physical showroom where one can indulge all the senses, especially touch. With the dominance of digital systems in our world, we explore the possibility of discovering through direct interaction. A large wooden display unit presents a series of pulleys and levers that are attached to various products. An action causes a reaction, pull and push, discovering through the physical exploration of an analog search engine. The display sits within 34m2.
