Carboard Lexus IS – Thinking Outside The Box

Lexus have made a drivable replica of the Lexus IS using precision tools and corrugated cardboard to show off their craftsmanship.

Lexus aren’t known for being bad at anything. The luxury brand embodies enigmatic Japanese reliability and technology with something a little more crisp and classy than your average Toyota. The cars are beautiful, economical and fairly pricey. For the most part they are also made of metal.

Not this one though! Lexus UK have gone above and beyond to showboat their design flare with this project.

Using the original design files for the IS meant that this promotional piece of art is not only impressive – it’s dead on, complete with interior. If you’re a fan of Lexus or the arts or even corrugated cardboard (?) you need to see this.


The “takumi” – men and women with outstanding crafting skill – work on the Lexus production lines and hone their dexterity skills by learning how to fold paper into a origami model cat, using only their non-dominant hand. The Origami Car takes the spirit of this talent to a far higher level, while also embracing the spirit of Lexus’s Creating Amazing global brand campaign.

Headlights, tyres and other parts of the car are in fact, the usual metal and plastics but the fact the car can drive and you can comfortably sit inside it is pretty astounding.

Hoverboard Project

With this beautiful replica and their recent hoverboard project, it’s safe to say we will be keeping a close eye on Lexus’s future projects with bated breath. If you haven’t already seen it, check out the video below. Marty McFly eat your heart out.
