To celebrate the collaboration, Gucci and The North Face have created a unique geodesic dome as one of the dedicated Pit Stops along the Desert X Contemporary Art Exhibition.
This installation uses different materials that recall concepts related to the temporariness of landscapes, travel and exploration and is covered in a pattern from the collection.
The Pit Stop is located in close proximity to a number of hiking trails in the area and just steps away from the entrance of the Cactus to Clouds trailhead, a challenging 19.8 mile point-to-point trail that features beautiful wild flowers.
