Meet the Lexus made from cardboard

10w ago



Lexus do make beautiful cars but the idea to make a car from cardboard with the inspired art of origami may sound a little adventurous, daring and bold but make it they did and here it is.

It`s a work of art

The car was the result of a partnership between design and model companies Laser Cut Works and Scales and Models with the help of cardboard manufacturer, D S Smith. It took 3 months to make not bad considering each individual 10 mm sheet of cardboard had to be cut by a 3D laser printer and painstakingly glued together sheet by sheet, each sheet took 10 minutes to dry and had to be assembled by hand over 3 months, with 1,700 cardboard sheets used for the entire car each with it`s own reference number to ensure the assembly was precise and accurate.
