Germane Barnes (M.Arch '12) collaborates with Lexus in innovative Design Miami installation

ON/ by Studio Barnes.

School of Architecture alum Germane Barnes (M.Arch ’12) was commissioned by Lexus to design an installation, title ON/, inspired by the new Lexus LF-Z Electrified Concept car, which is due to be released in 2022.

“The installation provided a sneak peek at the new vehicle in the form of a suspended steel wireframe, a floating line drawing of the design activated with those colorful heartbeats, two lit archway swings and Barnes’s first furniture collection, inspired by the Art Deco architecture of South Beach,” writes Elizabeth Fazzare for CULTURED Magazine. “But it also represented a much larger call to action, one to which Barnes has dedicated his practice and his work as a professor at the University of Miami School of Architecture.”
