NGV Gala DinnerLuminous Wonder 2023

An everyday car park with low-lying ceilings and cavernous proportions was transformed from a dark forgotten place into a luminous wonder.

An expansive yet intimate scene of crystalline intensity showcased the intersection of design — art and hospitality. From the over-scaled floor-grazing chandeliers caged between truss and concrete columns. To the thousands of glowing candles, illuminating the dining tables laid out in diagonal lines of repetitive formations. We cast a new light on an everyday space, giving rise to new thinking and perspectives — creating unforgettable memories.
