LIXIL makes pioneering water and housing products that solve everyday, real-life challenges, making better homes a reality for everyone, everywhere.
LIXIL Building Technology (LBT), a global leader in curtain walls, building windows and building interiors, plays an instrumental role in shaping some of our most recognizable skylines around the world. We develop innovative and iconic architectural works in collaboration with the world's greatest contemporary architects, using advanced technologies and sustainable solutions.
Utilizing our global network of design and engineering centers, we combine design capabilities, a problem solving approach, and technological skills to turn complex engineering and design challenges into reality.
Permasteelisa Group, the largest entity within LIXIL Building Technology, has cladded many of the most iconic buildings in the greatest cities in the world, including the Sydney Opera House, The Shard (London), and the Prada Aoyama Epicenter (Tokyo). We also develop interiors for the flagship stores of the world's best known and most refined fashion brands.
In Japan, LIXIL's legacy in curtain wall technology dates back to 1968 when Shin Nikkei, one of the five companies that merged to form LIXIL, placed Japan's first super high-rise curtain walls on the Kasumigaseki building in central Tokyo. Since then, our curtain walls have shaped many iconic buildings in Japan and Asia, including the Tokyo International Forum, the National Art Center, Tokyo, the TOKYO SKYTREE, and the OCTA Tower, Hong Kong.
More than merely a component of a building, curtain walls play a critical role in improving the quality of buildings, their performance and reducing their carbon footprint. With increased attention on sustainability, requirements around the quality and technological capabilities of facades will only grow. We constantly focus on enhancing our technology to improve the thermal and acoustic performance of buildings, as well as working to improve engineering, design and production processes.
We seek to improve quality of life in our cities by constructing buildings that help to protect the environment and provide better spaces to live and work. Ultimately, we are inspired by the ambition of leaving a heritage for humanity.
