Introducing art into commercial arenas is one way to grab people's attention; the newest Louis Vuitton store is definitely attention-grabbing with its recently installed Cause and Effect sculpture. Hanging form the ceiling as an impressive chandelier, it takes after the original sculpture that was unveiled in 2012. Of course, this Cause and Effect design is tailored to the space it is placed in, which makes it shorter so as to not interfere with the shop's layout or merchandise.

Created by Korean contemporary artist Do Ho Suh, the Cause and Effect sculpture 42,000 acrylic resin figures that form a warm ombre aesthetic as though it were modelled after a sunset. The light really makes it stand out.
