2014 MILAN DESIGN WEEK – Lexus
Works from Second Lexus Design Award Winners Also Featured
TORRANCE, Calif., (Jan. 24, 2014) – Lexus will hold a special exhibition of works by three world-renowned designers at the Milan Design Week, the foremost international event for the world’s design industry, held in Milan, Italy. The exhibition, entitled Lexus Design Amazing 2014 Milan, will be held at Circolo Filologico Milanese and run from Tuesday, April 8 through Sunday, April 13.
The three global designers highlighted in the exhibition are Italian designer Fabio Novembre, Japanese designer Nao Tamura and the U.S. design team of MIT Media Lab, Tangible Media Group, led by Professor Hiroshi Ishii. Each piece of work, created especially for the exhibition, aims to provide an unexpected encounter that goes beyond the field of automobiles. Each designer will work under the Lexus brand concept “Amazing in Motion,” challenging themselves to express the concept in a way not yet achieved.
The twelve winning awards from the second Lexus Design Award will also be displayed at the venue. The winners will be announced in late January.

Under its Amazing in Motion brand concept, Lexus has been proactively supporting artists through the launch of the Lexus Design Award, Lexus Short Films and now Lexus Design Amazing 2014 Milan .
