AGC Asahi Glass, a world-leading manufacturer of glass, chemicals and high-tech materials, announces that its Kiriko glasswork has been chosen by Toyota Motor Corporation to be fitted to its new Lexus LS model released today.

This glasswork is chemically strengthened glass with delicate patterns carved into by using AGC’s advanced technologies. It is used for door trim ornamentation on the inner door panels of the executive grade of Lexus LS500 and LS500h.

The new Lexus LS is a flagship model of the Lexus brand. With “TAKUMI craftsmanship” as a theme, it has a distinctive and refined interior inspired by traditional Japanese craftsmanship skills.

AGC’s glasswork enhances the unique aesthetic by integrating traditional Japanese influences and advanced manufacturing techniques.

With the aim of reproducing the original design of a glass artist, AGC has brought together advanced production techniques and technologies around Japan under a slogan of “turning craftwork into industrial products.”

Combining AGC’s mold design and glass forming technologies with precise processing and specialized polishing processes, AGC has established a mass production process to create the world’s first door trim ornamentation* 1 .

Under the management policy AGC plus, the AGC Group has made a commitment to create products that add various pluses for stakeholders. Pluses for society include 'safety', 'security', and 'comfort', while pluses for customers include 'new value' and 'functionality'.

AGC is dedicated pursuing technological innovations that allow it to continue providing products that add new value and exceed customers' expectations.
