Approached by luxury car maker Lexus in 2015 to design a furniture inspired by the new RX model, Camiel Weijenberg and the WEIJENBERG team set to work looking at the interior and overall design of the car. Similar to WEIJENBERG’s own signature aesthetic, ‘Crafting the Traditional, Shaping The Future’, and the firm’s pursuit for perfection, the RX model blends the use of traditional and cutting-edge techniques.
Wanting to replicate this in a luxury piece of furniture for modern use, the design remains nameless, with twists and angles that create a tension in the piece open to interpretation. The hand-stitched leather detailing and laser cut wood accents in the RX are elements reflected in WEIJENBERG’s design, applying hand-crafted technique that is both personal and that defines luxury.
