Spotted in a Harrods window display – Window 6 Brompton Road Harrods I believe, Ed is this rather nice shaped display of Christie MicroTiles…
At first glance you would think that the free-standing display would collapse in on itself, but the designers have been clever in using perspex cube shapes, surrounding the products on display, on the shelves created within the display shape. These are acting structurally to support the tiles above.
This is one of the most clever retail display designs we have seen recently. We believe it was installed by Cardiff, UK-based exhibition and display technology company Alchemy.
This shape, of 31 tiles, can be described (with the Issy-Neale formula) as: _7X7_7T_6TH_T6H_6TH_2T5H_5T2H_4T3H_

The formula isn’t quite right – the top two rows are 5T2H_4T3H. The quick check is to add up the T count in the formula which doesn’t give 31.

Top marks to eagle-eyed Dave – I missed the correct number of tiles in the top two rows in the photo of the display at an angle (and not double-checked the T count as he did). The post has now been corrected.
