Holt Renfrew Italian Immersion Bobbin

Iconic retailer Holt Renfrew in conjunction with the Italian Trade Commission planned a retail celebration of all things Italian; everything from luxury goods to fine cuisine. As part of that experience, Holt Renfrew turned to Great Lakes Scenic Studios to fabricate some large thread bobbins and needles to help decorate their flagship 100 Bloor Street West store in downtown Toronto.

The large bobbins were rigged to hang down from the ceiling to the ground floor in the elevator foyer. The thread playfully wove itself downward and hung in a magical suspension. The trick behind this effect was that it was actually made of an aluminum pipe that had been artistically bent and then painted to reproduce the look of real thread. The needle received a similar treatment, made of scenically painted MDF and aluminum.

Holt Renfrew Square One Nail Bar

HR Nail Polish Bottle

We had the pleasure of parterning again with our long time client Holt Renfrew to produce massive oversized nail polish bottles for the grand opening of their newest store in Square One. Each piece was hand carved from styrofoam and finished in Holt Renfrew's glossy trademark magenta. Thia unit was over 7' tall by 4' wide and was showcased in their main atrium. When a client calls with a seemingly impossible request, we find a way to make it happen!
