DESIGNER FORMAFANTASMA (SIMONE FARRESIN AND ANDREA TRIMARCHI)


"When we visited Lexus plants, we were impressed by how Lexus is committed to excellence in craftsmanship, integrity in its production and responsibility in its use of technology. We felt the openness and honesty of the brand living as the fundamental of the anticipation. This led us to the design concept of "transparency".

CHEF YOJI TOKUYOSHI


"Transparency is not just about being clear and lucent. Being transparent is sometimes an invisible thing and makes you think. This builds the anticipation, and increases the joy of the reveal. I would like to express this concept through the tasting experience."
