Next-Generation Lexus LS to Feature Carved Glass Interior TrimMar 15th, 2017
Today, Lexus debuted a stunning new interior option for the fifth-generation LS with hand-pleated door trim and carved glass accents — the craftsmanship on display here is next-level:
The door trim was inspired by origami, and were originally rendered in paper by a skilled fabric artisan. The finished pattern is three-dimensional, and repeats the Lexus “L” motif in intricate detail.
For the glass accents, Lexus relied on the skills of Kiriko glassworkers to design the original template. This design was then reproduced using advanced glass production technology that scans and digitizes every facet. Finally, the glass was treated using reinforcement technology to ensure the panel is strong enough for a car interior.
