Lexus @ Milan Design Week 2009


Lexus Crystallized Wind

For the last few years, Lexus has been taking part in the Milan Design Week by creating a unique exhibit in collaboration with an artist. Last year, it was the Elastic Diamond with nendo, and this year Lexus has partnered with Huzimoto Takeshi, one of Japan’s up & coming architects, to create Crystallized Wind, or more simply, a fully transparent LFA:

Here’s some more information from dolcevita:

The concept car on display in Milan boasts a superb range of accessories, gadgets and styling products; all made of the same transparent material. It’s not only about design, said Wahei Hirai, responsible of the project, it goes deeper than that ; we tried to create something really special; we love to work with international artists and designers and a less common kind of collaboration never fails to bring a greater depth of expertise, major improvement and a deeper vision.

It’s also suggested in the Lexus press release that this is an exploration of the L-Finesse design language, but I just think it’s an amazingly cool thing to look at. Milan Design Week happens from April 22-26, so I’m sure photos and information will be forthcoming as the event draws closer.

  1. I want that!

    I want a gallery full of Lexus’ Milan Design Week masterpieces. Want! Want!

    But I’m having a hard time understanding the pictures…

  2. My guess is that they didn’t want to reveal too much too early.
