Hangmen has been making visual displays for Filippa K for many years, and materials have always been a central focus in the collaboration. In both companies we are left with excess material. For Filippa K it may be fabrics from past collections, and for Hangmen it is different materials from past productions. We share the vision of a more sustainable visual merchandising cycle and many of our productions use recycled or repurposed materials.
After receiving mood boards from the team at Filippa K, we respond by designing sketches and prototypes for a visual display. This gives us the opportunity to keep materials at the focus of the design process. Once approved we move forward with producing, packing, and shipping displays to multiple stores around the world.
