While other similar trade show installations use brand new containers, all of the ones used for the Hilfiger show [1] were recycled. The containers are refurbished at Bootsmanufaktur [2], a shipyard that also specializes rebuilding old boats. Because they required minimal construction, the containers only took one day to be placed, three days for rough construction and about three more days for the interiors to be finished.

On one side of the installation, Artdepartment-Berlin [3] built a giant screen out of 10 containers. One face of each container was cut away and screens were placed inside. Using 10 back-pro beamers, one enormous picture was projected onto the screen, creating a dramatic backdrop for buyers to check out the line.
