Hermès commissioned Studio Noa Verhofstad to create the Christmas 2018 display for their Amsterdam and Oslo shop windows. Following Hermès's theme 'Play', Verhofstad found her inspiration in the arctic region; the playful white landscape, with their local inhabitants such as a polar bear (Ursus maritimus) and a white owl (Bubo scandiacus).
All the objects in the display are crafted using the traditional stained glass technique. The animals are dressed in genuine Hermès leather.
