Harrods Egyptian Escalators

The interior design of Harrods is impressive even without decorations. The ancient Egyptians continue to fascinate people today. This phenomenon is called 'Egyptomania', which seemed to have gripped the London luxury department store Harrods in the 1990s. The artist who decorated the spaces and escalators back then was the British William Mitchell, who became known in the 1960s and 70s for his large-scale abstract sculptures and reliefs. His patron was Mohammed Al-Fayed, an Egyptian who bought Harrods in 1985. Al-Fayed took a liking to Mitchell, who subsequently worked for a long time as a designer for the businessman. Thus, following the Egyptian Rooms and the Egyptian Hall, the Egyptian Escalators were also created, transporting visitors to the fifth floor. These escalators were even the first automatic ones in the whole of Great Britain!
