Rich in architecture and heritage, Farshid Moussavi’s Harrods Toy Department is our latest project to be featured in Wallpaper*

The Grade I listed toy store was designed using a very limited material pallet. Yet Farshid Moussavi still manages to achieve a different aesthetic in each themed room of the department to create an engaging shopping experience without compromising the simplicity of the design.

To that end the architectural practice incorporated layered Perftec panels which clad the walls and tunnel connector of the department store.

One set of panels were perforated with larger hole sizes and cut so that there was a ‘half-hole’ along the edge of each panel to match the next one in line. This required an extremely intricate design and manufacture process to get right.

When layered, the panels created a stunningly moiré effect adding interest without the usual visual noise of a typical toy store – encouraging a sharper detection of space.

The perforated staircase is the best thing about the house. It is a piece of art and throws fantastic shades on the wall. I love that it brings light into the house even on a dark day.
