Lexus has published a new report, commissioned in partnership with leading global trends forecaster WGSN, examining people’s changing lifestyle trends and priorities during the past 18 months and how these will influence a post-pandemic world in the coming years.
Having lived through an extended period of sensory deprivation during lockdown, we are now looking to feel more in every moment. From treating family and friends to home-cooked fine dining, to the development of augmented biology and the Internet 3.0, to the simple pleasure of getting up to dance, the report illustrates the importance consumers continue to place on experiences.
The study includes research from physicists and sociologists and covers different aspects of life, work and leisure, examining what we buy and enjoy. It looks at the changes in city living, travel adventures, the emergence of space travel, the power of dance, the love of nostalgia, the growing popularity of crafting and the comfort found in food.
