Globally-celebrated for his unique ability to transform ordinary spaces into lush, theatrical environments, Bailey is known as the premier event designer for a client roster that includes celebrities, royal families, CEO’s and athletes. Known for his ability to transform the dreams of his clients into reality, Bailey is often sought out to create never-seen-before designs that serve as backdrops for some of the most memorable moments of their lives. In addition to his events, Preston is a sought-after artist who has been commissioned to create public art installations in London, Taipei, Hong Kong, New York, and Jakarta.

The visually stunning hot air balloon and animated carousel will indefinitely reside in the atrium at Wynn Las Vegas. 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, artistically arranged in a vibrant color palette. The hot air balloon stands 20 feet tall and weighs 4,000 pounds, while the carousel is 13 feet tall, 16 feet wide and weighs 6,000 pounds. Both installations feature theatrical lighting and are accompanied by festive music. In total, more than 3,500 hours went into completing the installations.

The new floral sculptures complement the existing décor elements within the Wynn atrium, which was designed to create a soft, lush atmosphere that acts as a decompression zone as guests enter the resort. The 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, creating an ever-changing space for guests to enjoy.

When developing the concept of the floral sculptures, Bailey looked to childhood inspirations to play upon the existing whimsical theme of the Wynn atrium. Having always been fascinated by the magic of a carousel and the imposing imagery of a hot air balloon, Bailey translated that captivation into floral interpretations that could live forever in the memories of guests visiting Wynn Las Vegas.
