INTERSECT BY LEXUS to Open Its Third Global Location in New York City

NEW YORK (November 15, 2018)―On November 15, 2018, INTERSECT BY #Lexus – NYC―a unique cultural space where ideas and people converge―will open its third global location in #newyork City. Following successful launches in Tokyo and Dubai, #intersectbyLexus will live in the heart of the vibrant Meatpacking District and continue the brand's commitment to supporting innovation on a local, national and global level.

Crafted by world-renowned interior designer Masamichi Katayama of Wonderwall, who also led #design in Tokyo and Dubai, the 16,500 square foot, three story Manhattan space will be the largest of the three properties, with unique elements and experiences that evolve with each distinct floor. The street level will be anchored by the Café area, the CRAFTED FOR LEXUS retail area and a Public Gallery space, which will feature everything from product concepts to custom exhibitions and installations. The inaugural full-service Restaurant at #intersectbyLexus – NYC and Cocktail Bar and Lounge will be located on the second floor. Finally, the third floor Private Gallery rounds out the space and will transform for a multitude of culturally relevant programming concepts such as: full immersion events, art installations, film screenings, panels, performances and other inviting experiences.

Like its predecessors in Tokyo and Dubai, #intersectbyLexus – NYC will call upon visionaries to collaborate on experiential programming that engages with the building, community and five core pillars―hospitality, food, #design, entertainment and technology. Each program will "intersect" facets of culture on multiple levels and deliver creative, exceptional moments to the city and beyond. "New York City is an important global cultural hub with a great spirit of collaboration, making it a perfect location for #intersectbyLexus," says Yoshihiro Sawa, President, #Lexus International. "The combination of the uniquely designed space with the curiosity and imagination of the city's people will serve to inspire the next generation of creators and innovators."
