Harrods Toy Store

Perftec
Bespoke perforated panels used for the backdrop of the toy department and in the connecting tunnels of the Grade I listed building in Knightsbridge.

The large perforated panels create a visually stunning backdrop for the new toy department in Harrods. 

Farshid Moussavi Architecture kept the design simple and eliminated the visual noise of a typical toy store - yet without being boring - to encourage a sharper detection of space.

Throughout several connecting tunnels (which connect the various themed rooms of the store) we layered smaller pitched perforated panels to create a moiré effect. 

The panels with the larger perforated hole sizes were all 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.

Wallpaper* Magazine commented that they toy store has been give: “a fresh injection of charm and innovation, constructing a contemporary childhood haven.”

- A. Newman, Between Time Ltd.
The perforated balustrades supplied by Cadisch MDA appear as though they've been made up with different panels when in fact they're one complete piece with different holes. This makes our part much easier and provides greater accuracy, as we don't have to play around with different panels.
