How would it feel if 3,000 flowers start to bloom in radiant colors just as you stroll past them? This is the exact reality that Daimaru departmental store in Japan has created by putting up a dazzling floral installation called the “Flower Mirror”.

This creation is a perfect example of what happens when science meets floral beauty. The installation features 800 movable motors, that push out a secondary layer of darker flowers over the lighter hued ones. When someone walks past the window display the sensors detect their silhouette causing the flowers to systematically open in bloom.
The interactive flower mirror is also able to reflect various shapes, patterns or texts that have already been pre-programmed. It was created as part of celebrations to mark Daimaru’s 300th year anniversary and measures 4m wide and 3m long.
