The new Lexus LS is a flagship model of the Lexus brand. With “TAKUMI craftsmanship” as a theme, it has a distinctive and refined interior inspired by traditional Japanese craftsmanship skills. AGC’s glasswork enhances the unique aesthetic by integrating traditional Japanese influences and advanced manufacturing techniques.
With the aim of reproducing the original design of a glass artist, AGC has brought together advanced production techniques and technologies around Japan under a slogan of “turning craftwork into industrial products.” Combining AGC’s mold design and glass forming technologies with precise processing and specialized polishing processes, AGC has established a mass production process to create the world’s first door trim ornamentation*1.
