German Window Displays


I decided to revisit one of my most favorite websites – Recyclart – to see what I’ve missed in the past month (I like to go through their archives list and open each one in a new tab.) My favorite piece was done by Natsuyo Koizumi (her website and blog) – she made bunnies out of toilet paper rolls for a window display! And these guys are seriously cute.


As I poked around her site a little more I realized that she does this window displays all the time for the store below in Berlin, Germany.


Starting in 2008, she’s created different displays for each season.  My favorites involve some type of office supplies (of course) and I made up titles because her site is in german/japanese.

And as a random addition – make a shrimp out of a plastic straw!

    So creative and fun. I bet it is a joy to walk by and see what kind of changes have been made. That shrimp is Phenomenal.

    There seems to be a lot of imagination – concerning windows displays – in Germany. I like especially the straw basket: must have been an awful lot of work. Nice pics. The shrimp and its tutorial are in another category: awesome!
