LEXUS AT THE 2017 MELBOURNE CUP CARNIVAL

LEXUS AT THE 2017 MELBOURNE CUP CARNIVAL

#EXPERIENCEAMAZING

This year a refined, finessed and elevated environment is inspired by the all-new Lexus LS - a luxurious flagship sedan that will be shown to the public for the first time in Australia ahead of its national launch in April 2018.

Inspired by the Takumi Craftsmanship of the Lexus LS

A stable of world-class collaborators assembled to translate this year’s design theme from the 2017 Milan Design Week of ‘Yet Philosophy’ over three levels, for 700 guests across Derby, Cup and Oaks Day. Yet Philosophy is a concept defined as ‘the harmonisation of contradictory elements’.

This year a refined, finessed and elevated environment was inspired by the all-new Lexus LS - a luxurious flagship sedan shown to the public for the first time in Australia ahead of its national launch in April 2018.

Exploring the three-level ‘Future Cave’ Pavilion conceptualised by Joost Bakker, the interiors by Etic Studio (Emilie Delalande) will reflect the model’s incisive simplicity and intriguing elegance, such as three-dimensional wall panelling reminiscent of the LS’ cabin, along with a sumptuous colour palate and a balance of light and shadow inspired by the Japanese Kiriko glass ornament in the door of the LS.

INSPIRED BY THE LS

The flagship vehicle that introduced a brand and challenged an industry reignites to do it once again. Unveiled at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January 2017, the new sedan exemplifies Lexus’ Takumi craftsmanship.
