Lexus to Awaken the Senses at Milan Design Week 2015



Tokyo, Feb 19, 2015 - (JCN Newswire) - Lexus International will present a sense-based exhibit experience, titled "Lexus - A Journey of the Senses", at Milan Design Week 2015(1). The exhibit will feature Internationally-Acclaimed Designer Philippe Nigro and World-Renowned Chef Hajime Yoneda.

The exhibit, running from April 14 to 19 at Spazio Lexus - Torneria in Tortona, will offer an amazing experience that excites and awakens the senses. As a brand that places great emphasis on the senses, both in its design process and when creating cars that true offer driving pleasure, Lexus hopes that visitors will find the exhibit a wide-ranging and exciting sensory experience.

Philippe Nigro, a designer with eclectic experience in product and space design, was chosen to design the space. Additionally, Lexus called on chef Hajime Yoneda for food design. Yoneda, who earned a 3-star Michelin rating in 2009, has risen rapidly to international recognition for his unique and original interpretation of gastronomic tradition. The fruit of this collaboration between two internationally acclaimed creators with very different backgrounds promises to be a truly unique experience.

At the same venue during Milan Design Week, works by the 12 finalists of the Lexus Design Award(2) 2015 (for which the theme was also "Senses") will also be displayed. For more information, visit www.lexus-int.com/design/lda.

Designer Profiles

Philippe Nigro, Space Designer

Philippe Nigro was born and educated in France and divides his time between his homeland and Italy. Nigro's works are characterized by a mixture of prospective research and a pragmatic appreciation of the manufacturers with whom he works. This knowledge allows him to navigate among projects of different designs and scales. Some objects he designed are in museum collections including his "Twin-Chairs" and "T.U. table" at Centre Pompidou. He also collaborates with a number of prestigious international brands. In 2014, Nigro was named Designer of the Year by Maison & Objet in Paris, and was commissioned to create the scenography for the 7th edition of the Triennale Design Museum in Milan.

Hajime Yoneda, Food Designer

A former computer engineer who has become one of the world's most talked-about chefs, Hajime Yoneda has earned the admiration of the restaurant industry for his extraordinary skill, innovative thinking, uncompromising insistence on perfection, and the vast scope of his culinary vision. His restaurant was awarded three Michelin stars in 2009, only a year and five months after opening, an honor no other establishment in the world has earned so quickly. It is also ranked in the Foodie Top 100 Restaurants and Asia's 50 Best Restaurants. In January 2015 Yoneda was listed among the 100 Best Chefs of the World by the French magazine Le Chef.

Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, John Jelinek IV, a web developer at Linux Academy, will discuss why major players like AWS, Microsoft Azure, IBM Bluemix, and Google Cloud Platform are all trying to sidestep VMs and containers...
Serverless applications increase developer productivity and time to market, by freeing engineers from spending time on infrastructure provisioning, configuration and management. Serverless also simplifies Operations and reduces cost - as the Kubernetes container infrastructure required to run these applications is automatically spun up and scaled precisely with the workload, to optimally handle all runtime requests. Recent advances in open source technology now allow organizations to run Serv...

"There is a huge interest in Kubernetes. People are now starting to use Kubernetes and implement it," stated Sebastian Scheele, co-founder of Loodse, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at DevOps at 19th Cloud Expo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Today most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes significant work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reducti...
GCP Marketplace is based on a multi-cloud and hybrid-first philosophy, focused on giving Google Cloud partners and enterprise customers flexibility without lock-in.

Public clouds dominate IT conversations but the next phase of cloud evolutions are "multi" hybrid cloud environments. The winners in the cloud services industry will be those organizations that understand how to leverage these technologies as complete service solutions for specific customer verticals. In turn, both business and IT actors throughout the enterprise will need to increase their engagement with multi-cloud deployments today while planning a technology strategy that will constitute a ...
Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches.

Using serverless computing has a number of obvious benefits over traditional application infrastructure - you pay only for what you use, scale up or down immediately to match supply with demand, and avoid operating any server infrastructure at all. However, implementing maintainable and scalable applications using serverless computing services like AWS Lambda poses a number of challenges. The absence of long-lived, user-managed servers means that states cannot be maintained by the service. Lo...
