Calty Designers Talk about Lexus LF-Ch

Hard to believe I never featured this before, but here’s an fascinating six-minute presentation by two people responsible for designing the Lexus LF-Ch concept: Tom Matsumoto, the design team leader, and Edward Lee, the creative designer:

This presentation took place during a Pecha Kucha Night, a unique one-evening conference that only allows presenters 20 slides and 20 seconds per slide, which makes for a very fast six minutes.

When I sat in the LF-Ch earlier this year, I was amazed at the craftsmanship, how everything was handmade and full detailed. One of my favorite shots was the Push-Button Start:

I’m still surprised by the revelation that the LF-Ch was created after the CT 200h was designed, but it would explain how much of the design was carried over between them:

It’s amazing how similar they are, especially after getting used to the CT 200h for the last few months.
