L I F E S T Y L E Heading up the stairs to a higher level is an experience in itself. The staircase wall is lined with a cascading collage of 250 components from five different Lexus cars, which were painstakingly arranged by Katayama before being painted a minimalist white. The wall sets a creative tone for the second floor. Here visitors enter the intimate bistro space, which feels more like a well-designed living room, with a low panel wood ceiling and bookcases filled with design, art and automobile tomes. There are luxurious curved Abbracci chairs, walnut Eames stools, perfectly arced Oluce lamps and a statement light sculpture by Lindsey Adelman suspended from the ceiling. Subtle Lexus ‘L’ shapes can be discerned in the design motifs of the herringbone flooring and carpets. “If the references were too obvious, it would only appeal to Lexus fans,” explains Katayama, who enjoys visiting a few times a week.
