‘lexus l- finesse- crystallised wind’ art installation by sou fujimoto for lexus

earlier this month we featured ‘lexus l- finesse- crystallised wind’ art exhibition that will be presented at milan design week 09. here are some more images that we have received.

japanese architect sou fujimoto was invited by lexus to design their 2009 art exhibition for this year’s milan design week.

‘lexus l- finesse- crystallised wind’ will re-interpret the ambivalence of the lexus design philosophy ‘L-finesse’ through a dynamic installation that combines unity in space, sound and lighting.

‘crystallised wind is the result of a conceptual interpretation of the underlying principles of L finesse design’, explains sou fujimoto. ‘the term wind addresses not only the flow of wind, but also symbolises a flow or current in a greater sense. it is a new horizon where the natural and the artificial coexist in space. I wanted to find a way to give form to that which is formless: to take the flow of air and the passing of time and to represent them in such a way as to explain the essence of the duality of L-finesse. the result is an art form that represents movement yet stillness, and the flow of time in a timeless environment.’

the lexus space will display an acrylic art piece based on the full-size concept car model, the lexus super sports concept car, the LF-A as well as a specially designed piece of furniture constructed from acrylic.

the exhibition will take place in milan’s museo della permanente art gallery, from april 22nd to 26th.
