WAY Studio collaborates with moody once again this Christmas, this time, bringing surrealistic window installation crashing into the facade of Rockbund, Shanghai, enticing passers-by to immerse themselves within.

Gigantic out-of-scale yarn balls materializes from within the storefront windows out towards you, is this dream or reality? Reminiscent of Earth or Space? One ponders as you traverse this pathway.
Rockbund redevelopment is a quiet scenic stroll just off of the main bund area towards the Peninsula Hotel, Shanghai. Lyceum Building, where the window display is located, was built in 1927 and is a mix of Eclecticism and new Classical architecture. With Lyceum Theatre as its original function, its recent renovation is an important anchor in the recent Rockbund redevelopment, hosting MEM Art Space as an extension of Rockbund Art Museum and other various arts and photography events.

努力地去实现看似不现实的展示，这一切都源于人本身，我们想要的永远多于目前有的。被掩盖在物质的表象下的挑战、欲望和冒险破茧而出，通过有形的形式与这个世界对话着。与moody圣诞盒一同展于球体内（中橱窗）的为经典摄影品牌宝丽来（ 右橱窗）及加拿大本土咖啡品牌Tim Horton’s（左橱窗）。

We wanted to break through traditional Christmas window displays where products are displayed each brand on their own, one-sided towards viewers. Instead, we treated the space behind these three windows as one, even beyond the frames of the materialistic reality, creating these floating balls of yarns, hollowed out to host each brand’s Christmas products, while others seem to break right out-of-the-box into the everyday street.
In collaboration with moody, displayed center, and their “sensational” XMAS box, which presents for all five senses, is world-renowned vintage photography brand, Polaroid, with their latest onestep+, as well as local Canadian coffee brand, Tim Horton’s.
