TORRANCE, California — Lexus on Monday released a teaser shot of the interior of the unnamed concept it will unveil at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show.

The image is noteworthy because it shows Lexus taking some risks with its interior design. The image shows a cabin with sweeping lines and a thin-style seat and headrest somewhat reminiscent of Volvo.

A variety of materials appear to be used in the concept, including chrome, leather and wood. The leather treatment includes sweeping top-stitching that doesn't hew to straight lines and creates a quilted effect.

Lexus said it "hints at the new contemporary, upscale and uniquely Lexus design direction."

The concept debuts on January 9.

Edmunds.com says: Lexus appears to be tiptoeing in a more risky design direction — at least with its interiors.
