Enjoy Some “Reflection Time” and Special Gifts for Loved Ones
In the midst of our busy everyday lives, we often struggle to find moments to tell our partners or reflect on how much they mean to us. How about a chance to share your gratitude to the person dearest to you or to spend some quality time on your own? Starting Friday, January 27, 2023, INTERSECT BY LEXUS – TOKYO will host “Reflection Time,” letting you do just that.
For one month until Monday, February 27, the ground-floor Garage transforms into a luxury lounge featuring “on NOYES”, the latest brand from Japanese sofa manufacturer “NOYES”. Inspired by LEXUS’s philosophy towards craftmanship and NOYES pursuit of universal beauty of utility, the space allows guests to snuggle up to their individual lifestyles and preferred ways of spending time. Marking the first public opportunity to experience the new brand’s sofas released at the end of 2022, this is a must-see showcase especially configured for the event at INTERSECT BY LEXUS – TOKYO with vividly colored fabric variations that inspire creativity. The lounge is decorated with emotionally resonant photography that makes guests feel right at home and connects with their inner mindscapes.
In addition to the showcase, until Tuesday, March 14, original cookies by “Sweets Oblige by Asa & Lisa”, known for their healthy additive-free treats, are also on sale at INTERSECT BY LEXUS – TOKYO. Featuring no egg, butter, or milk, the cookies are made with over 80% organic ingredients like cacao, cacao nibs, and wheat grown in Kikuchi, the city in Kumamoto Prefecture famed for its rich nature and water that the Ministry of the Environment selected as one of the finest in Japan. These simple yet sophisticated cookies are presented in exclusive packaging. With their perfectly balanced moist texture and flavor that is full and faintly nostalgic, the vegan-friendly cookies make a superb choice of gift for that special someone—or a great way to treat yourself!
Visit INTERSECT BY LEXUS – TOKYO for some “reflection time” that lets you embrace your own emotions and show your loved ones how much you care about them.

“NOYES” creates sofas with a minimalist yet refined design that doesn’t fade over time, rooted in the goal of seeking out the essence of the sofa and achieving a universal beauty of utility that people will continue to use for a long time. With each sofa’s central frame structurally configured according to the design, its commitment to craftsmanship undergirds its choice of materials and handmade approach. At the end of 2022, it launched “on NOYES” with “BOUNDARY”, a modular sofa that meets individual needs. “Feelings Time” is the first public showcase of the new brand.
Sweets Oblige by Asa & Lisa
This vegan brand was started by two friends who met at grad school in New York: Asa, a certified nutritionist in the United States, and Lisa, an active voice in the media about international issues. Conceived as healthy and environmentally friendly sweets, their vegan items don’t use any dairy products like milk, eggs, and butter, and are made with organic and fair-trade ingredients that are good for both the original grower and our planet. A donation is made to nonprofits for each sale as part of Sweets Oblige by Asa & Lisa’s efforts to support children in Japan and in developing nations.
