We take an exclusive look behind the scenes of Lexus's European design division.
“This is probably the best view from any design studio,” says Lance Scott as we stroll to the end of the large terrace at ED2, Lexus’s design center in Sophia Antipolis, where he is the general manager of the design department. It’s winter, but the sky is bright blue and brilliant sunshine sparkles on the azure Mediterranean Sea that stretches out in front of us. Also in our line of vision is a picturesque hilltop village, a forest of palm trees and the snow-topped mountains of the Alps. Nice is a short drive east, and Cannes sits to the west. If you ever needed a spot to inspire innovative design, then this is probably it.
