Osaka-based artist Yasuaki Onishi recently collaborated with Mercedes-Benz, resulting in a monumental sculptural form based on the company’s 4-door CLA sedan. Onishi used his signature method consisting of translucent nylon sheets held by glue thread, creating an etherial element suspended in mid-air.

“Suspended in space like a ghost, light as a feather and pulsating in the slightest breeze, illuminated by the ambient light that catches it. The iconic silhouette of the CLA hangs on a silken tether, both weightless and colossal. A hull of air, a skin of light.”
