Since its opening in August this year, INTERSECT by Lexus has fast established itself as one of the trendiest spots in downtown Tokyo. A concept store combining different lifestyle elements, INTERSECT by Lexus encompasses design, fashion, art, music, and technology under one roof and serves as a one-stop cultural and lifestyle hub for the style-conscious crowd.

Billed as a “luxury brand experience space”, INTERSECT by Lexus is located in Tokyo’s elite Aoyama shopping and entertainment district. Designed by renowned interior designer Masamichi Katayama, the founder of Wonderwall, whose portfolio includes the Ozone bar at The Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong and Nike’s flagship store in Tokyo, INTERSECT by Lexus aims to create a harmonious environment where different lifestyle components meld seamlessly. To that end, Lexus collaborated with top-notch specialists in an array of establishments: a café co-developed with Norway’s coffee bar FUGLEN, a bistro created by renowned food director Daichi Tajima, and a shop selling fashion and lifestyle items exclusively designed by various luxury boutique brands. In addition, INTERSECT by Lexus also hosts a variety of events including workshops, talks and music concerts, featuring leading creative figures in Japan and worldwide.

Of course, being a Lexus initiative it should not be a surprise to see a showroom for Lexus vehicles, but not without a twist – as the space also co-exists with an art gallery: ” The Garage is an exhibition space that is both an art gallery and at the same time, an exciting secret hideout. Through a range of content and installations, it showcases LEXUS car culture alongside broader lifestyle-related concepts.”
Two more INTERSECT by Lexus stores are currently under development, one in Dubai and the other in New York.
