Barneys Windows – Christian Louboutin

Video by Michelle Chu

This was the first project I worked on with James. For three of the windows at Barneys New York. One window featured a rather haunted room set from a photograph, in which we placed linear actuators inside the drawers and the door to open and close on their own.
The second window used a combination of DC and stepper motors to make shoes spin around a woman’s head.
The final window was the most complex. In which we designed a system that used magnets to seamlessly move shoes around in a chase.
