One of the standout interior features in the new Lexus LS is the Kiriko glass interior trim, and here we have a video detailing its creation:
A world first for a production vehicle, it’s a perfect example of how Lexus is using Japanese craftsmanship to create innovative elegance.
Masters of Kiriko worked closely with Lexus designers and engineers to replicate the hand-carved appearance of their glasswork. Traditional Kiriko patterns are created by hand cutting clear colours and delicate lines in the glass, which is then repeatedly polished to a soft glow.
(It’s worth pointing out that this is an extended version of another LS video.)
