Christmas decorations stepped up a notch in London’s Regent Street as the thoroughfare was studded by overhanging video screens showing off various abstract and festive patterns. Not your boring rectangular screens either - oh no. These circular cogs worked rather well, and raised Regent Street’s game after a few years of uninspiring movie tie-in decorations. Could we be heading into a golden age of inventive street decorations?
