Milan Design Week 2015: Philippe Nigro, a journey of the senses for “Lexus”

Lexus International will present a sense-based exhibit, titled “Lexus – A Journey of the Senses,” at Milan Design Week 2015. The exhibit will feature internationally-acclaimed designer Philippe Nigro and world-renowned chef Hajime Yoneda.

The exhibit, running from April 14–19, 2015 at Spazio Lexus – Torneria in Tortona, Milan, will offer an amazing experience that excites and awakens the senses. As a brand that places great emphasis on the senses, both in its commitment to powerful visual designs and delivering performance that inspires, Lexus hopes that visitors will find the exhibit a wide-ranging and exciting sensory experience.

Philippe Nigro, a designer with eclectic experience in product and space design, was chosen to design the space. His work often delivers on aesthetics and function which made him a great partner for the Lexus exhibit. Additionally, Lexus called on chef Hajime Yoneda for food design. Yoneda, who earned a three-star Michelin rating in 2009, has risen rapidly to international recognition for his unique and original interpretation of gastronomic tradition. The fruit of this collaboration between two internationally acclaimed creators with very different backgrounds promises to be a truly unique experience.
