Marjan van Aubel unveils "even more reflective and immersive" solar-powered installation



Dutch designer Marjan van Aubel has exhibited a solar-powered installation in collaboration with car brand Lexus at this year's Milan design week.
Named 8 minutes and 20 seconds in reference to the amount of time it takes sunlight to reach the earth, the installation features a full-size silhouette of the brand's Future Zero-Emission Catalyst concept car made using sheets of organic photovoltaics that rely on sunlight to function.
Following its first showcase at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami (ICA Miami) last year, the installation was updated by Lexus from its initial iteration to be "even more reflective and immersive" within its new context at the Superstudio garden in Milan.
The installation is showcased in the garden at Superstudio "In my ideal future, the future is solar-powered," Marjan van Aubel told Dezeen.
"Where we can generate energy on the location where we need it in a beautiful way, not only aesthetically, but also done in a way that's thinking about [a] materials impact on our world," she continued.
"Design week is about showing new things, working with colours and giving this optimistic hope [and] joyful experience."
