French artist Lilian Daubisse has created an imaginative window for Hermès at Hong Kong International Airport

To celebrate the opening of the Hermès boutique at Hong Kong International Airport, French artist Lilian Daubisse flew to the island to create Hybrids, an inventive window with his favourite material – corrugated cardboard.

The Carte Blanche set of windows exhibit several imaginary animals with hidden anatomical forms – horns and claws – underneath a plant-like coat of fur made from corrugated cardboard that invites audiences to define themselves.

Daubisse has been experimenting with corrugated cardboard, which has become his preferred material, and through a meticulous process, he transforms common materials into unique objects.

To the artist, the material, which has existed for more than a century, is a unique source that can be recycled and can continuously renew its condition or form.
