‘8 Minutes and 20 Seconds’ is an interactive solar installation inspired by the Lexus concept car. The installation showcases a real-life version of the LF-ZC transformed using Organic Photovoltaic solar cells to create a hologram-like display.


The landscape comes to life through sound and light triggered by the visitor’s presence, underlining the importance of our relationship between the sun, ourselves, and the environment.⁠

The car sits amidst holographic trees and a reflecting seating area set against a backdrop of an interactive sun installation.


Designed with 16 Sunne’s, the sun shifts hues when visitors interact with a sensor made from Lexus' bamboo fabric for future vehicles. Touching the fabric prompts the sun to change colour, creating a personal sun experience for each and every visitor.
