The Wynn Las Vegas has unveiled two new floral installations by event designer Preston Bailey. The new installations, a hot air balloon and animated carousel, are in the hotel's atrium.
“All of us in the design and development area of our resorts are always trying to think of new things for the hotel. We love to have this place constantly changing; it makes it much more interesting for all of our guests who come frequently,” said Steve Wynn, chairman and CEO of Wynn Resorts. “We explore natural things like water, sunshine and beautiful flowers. Preston Bailey is someone who brings life to our ideas and creates new and beautiful things. He is gifted, artistic and one of the most renowned and highly respected designers of floral displays.”
The installations were crafted by Wynn Design and Development and Forte Specialty Contractors. Constructed with a core made of fiber-reinforced plastic, the sculptures are adorned with more than 110,000 flowers.
The Wynn's atrium is home to 50 year old Ficus trees that are surrounded by ten different species of dark and light green base plants. Floral sculpture balls, consisting of nearly 50,000 flowers, hang from the Ficus trees in a combination of colors and sizes. Every three weeks, more than 5,000 seasonal flowering plants are replaced in color palettes matching the season.
