Lexus Milan Design Week Retrospective

Lexus Crystallized Wind

When Lexus’ L-Finesse design language debuted in 2005, it also marked the first year of the the company’s involvement with the annual Milan Design Week in Italy—and now, Lexus Magazine has posted a retrospective of the various exhibits over the last five years.

It was at the Milan Design Week last year that the transparent LFA debuted, and 2008 had a matte black LF-Xh concept:

Lexus LF-Xh for Milan Design Week

This year’s Milan Design Week takes place in April, and it will be interesting to see just what Lexus comes up with for 2010—smart money would be on something involving the LF-Ch, though it could be anything from the LFA again to the HS.

Be sure to check out Lexus Magazine for a full recap of the past five years.



  1. Lexus’ designs for the Milan thing has been surprisingly interesting for the last few years. I even liked that LSh sculpture mainly because it clearly showed the nice curves that run along the vehicle’s doors.

  2. I’d like to see something like the next gen GS…they had a GS for the 2005 Milan exhibit…

  3. yes my city..Milano

    fantastic design


  4. GS-F cmon.

  5. If the current generation RX looked like that LFXH concept that would’ve been awesome.

  6. @Wunko: Well it does look 90% like the LF-Xh wink

  7. (Cj):@Wunko: Well it does look 90% like the LF-Xh wink

    I remember feeling disappointed that the 3RX didn’t look more like the LF-Xh—and now I don’t know what I was thinking. 90% is right.

    I do wish they had used those wheel arches, though. cool

  8. @krew: I just think that they’re too different to be compared.
