animated retail display props, moving window schemes

Animated London Window Display, 2 of 2.

Here is window 2 of a series of animated retail display props which we produced for the London store of a high-end mens’ fashion chain. Each window display featured a moving element taken from an iconic London landmark, powered by various motors, cams, drive-belts & the like. Here is the Parliament / Nelson’s Column / London Eye part of the scheme, as set up in our workshop (the animated gif is moving a bit faster than the original display, but you get the idea!):

Here is a link  to a little movie on YouTube capturing for all time an example of a typical Icon & Co job*: individual wall sections or whole buildings & streets can be reproduced from sheet plastic & timber & painted to look just like the real thing. Sometimes even better than the real thing. Routinely used for film & TV stage-set building & movie props but also as props in stores & shop windows where a bit of ‘street’ character is required!

* There is no such thing as a typical Icon & Co job, you should know that by now.

London to Paris Window Display

Animated Window Display

Here is a movie (link below) of a window display, created by the shop display and prop makers of Icon & Co, which was produced to celebrate a London to Paris car rally and was placed in the shop window of one of the event’s sponsors, Alfred Dunhill.  Electric cars raced around stylised models of landmarks from London & Paris and a ‘cross channel’ boat rocked perpetually between the two.
