The pillars on which the UX 250h, and on which the winners have made an artistic interpretation, are technology, design, innovation and detail.
At a time when the need to stop and meditate increases, Clap Studio was transported with Lexus to a world in which man and nature coexist in perfect harmony. “Our concept is a Zen garden which represents a state of mind: calm, pure conscience ”, state its creators of the winning design.
The concept of the Japanese garden brings together arbitrary / casual nature, who always finds a way to keep growing. And on the other hand the human hand perfection in charge of creating magic, symmetry and perfection and technology and innovation.
“In our zen garden Lexus represents perfect harmony, is the union of nature, technology and innovation. A creation of man with geometric lines and impeccable symmetry covered with vegetation ”, explains Iranzo.
“We used paper, an important part of Japanese culture, to represent Lexus greenery. The result is a work of art in which the paper, as a natural element, covers the exterior of the car giving it volume»Explains Montagud. Light, another essential element of Japanese culture, is responsible for transforming the Lexus UX 250h into a living element, because depending on its position, tone and intensity, it will generate a changing texture and color throughout. of the day.
