The Art of Driving by Lexus and Wallpaper*

Starting from the premise that there are parallels between car design and an art installation, in the way space, colour and form are manipulated, Lexus and Wallpaper* have teamed up with two visual artists to create a pair of one-off installations customized for the new Lexus IS 300h and IS 300h F SPORT

We asked artist Bahar Yurukoglu and architect Cristina Parreño to each create an installation to complement a series of projects - collectively titled 'Amazing in Motion' - commissioned by Lexus to explore innovation, design and creativity. Using the new Lexus models as canvases, the artists were encouraged to bring the cars' engineered grace to life by creating an art installation around them.
