ARTIST PETER CRAWLEY CELEBRATES LEXUS CRAFTSMANSHIP

Lexus has collaborated with an artist to celebrate the craftsmanship that goes into their cars.

Inspired by Lexus designers – who don’t just craft the physical cars, but craft the entire driving experience – artist Peter Crawley created a one-a-of-kind road map of the UK.

  • Mirroring the hand-finished touches Lexus is known for, Peter stitched each individual road entirely by hand into a sheet of watercolour paper.

    “Many things are well made, but to go to the next level and really craft something takes years of patience and practise.”

  • The finished map covers all 245,000 miles of motorways, A roads and B roads across the UK, requiring over 120 metres of thread and taking over 150 hours to craft.
