LEXUS DESIGN AWARD
ANCIENT CRAFT MEETS NEW DESIGN
A LEVEL OF ARTISTRY NEVER BEFORE SEEN IN AN AUTOMOBILE
The pattern on Studio Kobin’s clear and turquoise glass is the same as the one on the door-trim piece of the LS, reflecting its movement and unique shine. “I asked expert glassblowers to craft original glass using free-blowing techniques, giving each item a unique shape,” says Nakamura. “No two glasses are the same because I adapt the cut, the thickness of the lines, and the carving angle according to these individual shapes.”
Whether it’s Hikimono woodwork or Kiriko cut glass, the SEE SEE spindle tray and the Studio Kobin glasses are rich in stories that only uniquely crafted items can tell. Truly handmade, they are prime examples of the best of craftsmanship, making them ideal additions to the CRAFTED FOR LEXUS collection.
