The internationally exciting and inspiring city of Dubai now becomes the second place to host INTERSECT BY LEXUS.

As with the Tokyo space, the interior design for INTERSECT BY LEXUS – DUBAI is by Masamichi Katayama (Wonderwall Inc.). While the new INTERSECT relocates the experience to the United Arab Emirates, it maintains the same philosophy and style of the original space in Tokyo, including the distinctive spindle grille facade and a banquette made with the same leather as the LEXUS LFA seats.

Other elements have been especially planned for the Dubai venue, such as a desert-inspired ceiling design and a stunning car parts installation under a glass floor.

The space is divided into two stories: the Garage on the lower floor hosts LEXUS concept cars and other installations, while the upper floor includes a networking lounge, restaurant, library, and boutique showcasing CRAFTED FOR LEXUS, the unique collection of designer lifestyle items presented by LEXUS. Together, the various spaces combine to form a hub for advancing LEXUS brand activities through workshops, exhibitions, and other events.

The INTERSECT BY LEXUS – DUBAI team of top service professionals and beauty food experts is headed by Benjamin Nicholas, who has over a decade of experience within the hospitality industry in the UK as well as the UAE.

Also joining Nicholas and his team is Chef Tomas Reger, the accomplished culinary director behind some of the region’s most successful kitchens and gastronomic concepts, such as Dubai’s Secret Supper Club, From One Chef To Another, and Bloomie’s Kitchen.

Located in the heart of Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC)*, INTERSECT BY LEXUS – DUBAI is a third space between work and home, offering fresh encounters with people, art, design, culture, fashion, music, and technology.

From Tokyo to Dubai, and soon New York as well, INTERSECT continues its global journey.
