Centrepoint, Mall of the Emirates, Dubai


I found Centrepoint here in the Mall of the Emirates (and incidentally they are also in the Burjuman) and have included them here as the props that they have presented are very similar to those in the Science Museum back in London. These work very well as part of my explanation of repetition of form, shape and so on to my students. I do often take my students to the Science Museum to have a look at the various mathematical structures that they have explored there and presented so it was quite a pleasure to find store windows that have used them to support their merchandise. Of course the pyramidal format has been used if we look at the product display dynamics and although the merchandise is not the most exciting, these things are great to use to explain the display process with the use of hexagons and pentagons etc. As with a lot of these 'local' brands, I am not absolutely familiar with it, however, what they do, they do very well, and if you need to explore the fundamentals of product handling, this is a great place to start.
