Mechanical gears seem to drop from heaven like icy snowflakes, crystallising into a magical machine frozen in time. The gears represent our rational world, but here they transcend the purely utilitarian to become a romantic, haunting dream.

Tjep. was invited amongst six other international artists and designers to create a Christmas window for Italy’s most famous department store: La Rinascente on Piazza Duomo in Milano.
