When Lexus first unveiled the LS in 1989, our dedication to craft and superior quality revolutionised people's expectation of luxury cars.
INSPIRED BY JAPAN
To adorn the LS, we returned to our roots. Looking to Japanese culture, we found inspiration for a wholly new approach to trims. Traditional influences are combined with advanced manufacturing techniques to breathtaking effect.
Japanese lanterns inspire ambient lighting, and armrests appear to float effortlessly beside the door panels.
While the LS is home to the most innovative car-making technology, it’s also a space where natural materials are used with respect and flair – to create an interior environment that’s as tranquil as it is stylish.
Sophisticated sliced wood and laser cutting technologies make remarkable patterns and finishes possible. There are three unique finish options to choose from, all original designs painstakingly created by Takumi - our most senior craftsmen.
Created by our Takumi master craftsmen and inspired by the Japanese tradition of Origami, the LS’s hand pleated interior door trims are a work of art.
Realised in stunning 3D, the pattern captures the Lexus “L” motif in its folds. The effect is strikingly different from day to night, as the carefully crafted fabric facets interact with the light.
AS THE SUN GOES DOWN, THE FABRIC CHANGES ITS EXPRESSION. BY DAY, NATURAL RAYS GENTLY PLAY WITH ITS GEOMETRY. BY NIGHT, PLEATING IS ILLUMINATED BY THE LS’S INTERIOR LIGHT.
LUXURY IN EVERY DETAIL
Like the perfect host, the LS’s rear seat ushers you in, and encourages you to relax and unwind. There are options for heating, cooling, and even Shiatsu massage. You’ll also enjoy enviable legroom – more than in any LS model to date.
If you wish, you can also choose a reclining seat. Tilt it up to 48 degrees backwards for immediate calm, or raise it up to 24 degrees for assistance leaving the car.
