Inspired by a blazing fire the Art Wood Organic inlay took more than a year’s work to define. By layering the wood and applying a natural gloss coating to enhance the vibrancy of the grain, an impression of flickering flames is produced.
The wood is sustainably and responsibly sourced from the Agathis tree, a species native to Southeast Asia. Thin veneer sheets are stacked in multiple layers and then precision-sliced across the grain by the Takumi to produce the ultimate pattern. The striking curves and bold contrasts this process produces mark a new approach by Lexus, with strong appeal for people who value distinctive quality and forward-looking design.
