LIXIL makes pioneering water and housing products that solve everyday, real-life challenges, making better homes a reality for everyone, everywhere.
LIXIL's history can be traced back over 100 years when LIXIL's predecessors first combined a fixation for design and color, a passion for Japanese craftsmanship and an understanding of the properties of clay to produce one of Japan's first ceramic tiles for the home. With the same spirit, we have also transformed simple threads of silk into some of the world's finest artisanal textiles and fabrics, many found lining the rooms of royal households.
Architects and designers have played a key role throughout LIXIL's rich history, integrating functionality with refined aesthetics. This has been the foundation of what we call our Living Culture – a way in which we ensure that our products are always relevant to people, our lifestyles and the times in which we live.
Living Culture is the reason we believe LIXIL is the Link to Good Living. The spirit of Living Culture will continue to be at the core of every product we make and service we provide, around the world and for generations to come.
We encourage learning from the past and challenging the status quo to encourage continued innovation in the technology and design of living spaces as they evolve over time and to suit the needs of society. This is the spirit of Living Culture, brought to life for sharing with others through our museums, galleries and publications activities.
