Real Life at Work by Emily Forgot and Laurie D

Real Life at Work is an installation at the London office of advertising agency Wieden + Kennedy.

All this month, advertising agency Wieden + Kennedy has been giving passers-by a surprise with its window installation Real Life at Work. At the agency’s London office in Hanbury Street, illustrator Emily Forgot and 3D artist Laurie D turned a street-facing window into a monochrome scene of office life, recreating furniture and objects in paper and card.

Throughout August W+K employees have been taking turns to work from the window, with their actions being recorded for the live stream The window is part of the Hello Neighbour series, a project which sees the creative agency invite different artists to take over the space and use it to project something creative to the city beyond.

Laurie D says: 'Essentially we wanted to take an office space one step further and give it a life of its own. Where in an ideal world time runs backwards, the phone continues to ring and paper work has a mind of its own.'

Emily Forgot’s comic-book inspired shop windows for La Rinascente during Milan Design Week are featured in Frame 93.
