CRAFTED FOR LEXUS is a carefully chosen collection of sophisticated and timeless accessories produced by a new generation of Japanese master craftsmen. Each artisan in the range has been selected for having a commitment to craft and a design philosophy that resonates with Lexus.
The items are exclusive to INTERSECT BY LEXUS, the brand’s retail concept space in Tokyo. Based on age-old artistry and excellent design, the CRAFTED FOR LEXUS collection brings together tradition and innovation, while adding finesse and functionality to the lifestyle of the Lexus driver and anyone with a taste for well-made products.
This key tray was conceived by designer Masuko Unayama, who owns SyuRo, and handmade by Sotatsu Kamikawa of Nisshin Kikinzoku, a company that operates in the tradition of Tokyo silverware. Appearing as if it were cut from a sphere, the tray has a soft form that sways as it balances. The shape was created using a hammering technique that stretches the metal gradually while leaving faint marks, giving the item the warmth and character of an object made by hand.
- SIZE: DIA 15 cm

COFFEE DRIPPER & CUPS
The tableware of ONE KILN is made by Yusuke Kido at the small studio workshop in the backyard of his home in the suburbs of Kagoshima. Kido uses a secret glaze for which different types of minerals and ashes are mixed to create the original colors and textures that form his signature style. Each of the ONE KILN coffee cups and drippers has distinct nuances, making them one-of-a-kind pieces with a unique personality.
- COLORS (Cups): green, blue, yellow
LED DESK LIGHT
The LED desk light was the first product by Bsize, a home electronics venture founded by Keita Yagi in 2011. The impetus for development was Yagi’s discovery of special LED lightbulbs that offer more than 90 percent of the spectrum of natural sunlight. Yagi inserted these long, thin LEDs into a single pipe that bends in four places. With its understated presence, this desk light will fit in perfectly at home or the office.
- COLOR: white
