Lexus Australia Creates Stunning Pavilion for Melbourne Cup Carnival

Lexus Australia has created a stunning display as part of their sponsorship of the Melbourne Cup Carnival:

Here are some details from Wallpaper Magazine:

The exterior of the three-storey pavilion is densely entwined with thousands of metres of recycled wire. Sustainable design expert, Joost Bakker, intricately twisted the material to recreate an enormous bird’s nest of rusted copper-toned roots.

Setting out to ‘transport Lexus guests beyond the racetrack, into a world of state-of-the-art design, it’s hard to believe the pavilion is a temporary structure’, says [Mim Design Studio director Miriam] Fanning of the carnival, which spans just six days.

Nicolas Hogios, chief designer at Lexus Australia, also created a sculpture of the new RX at the entrance of the pavilion — here is a behind-the-scenes look at the process:

Of all the omitted details, Lexus should have ignored the details behind the horizontal slats in the grille... Haha
