UPDATED: MINI & Airstream By Fritz Hansen


Last month I told you about the collaboration between MINI and Airstream designed by the Republic of Fritz Hansen. Now, the MINI / Airstream Combo is showcased at INTERNI DESIGN ENERGIES exhibition in Milan and I have updated photos and a video for you!



Three internationally revered icons of design have combined to create a one -off: the MINI Cooper S Clubman and the chrome Airstream camper trailer, each lovingly detailed by Copenhagen-based design firm Republic of Fritz Hansen.

For their part the Danes outfit a mid-century American classic, the Airstream trailer, with inspired twists on their countryman Arne Jacobsen's instantly recognizable, cushy Series SevenTM and SwanTM chairs. Retro wood interior paneling, Neoprene-wetsuit upholstery accents and - get this - a sunbathing bed leave no doubt: this camper is going to the beach.






Outside, the trailer's streamlined profile reflects sleek, sinister touches like a midnight-black roofline and lightning-green door etching. Meanwhile, our trusty MINI Cooper S Clubman gets treated to a one-off black paint scheme with the Airstream's lightning green tint trimming headlamps, alloy wheels and side mirrors, and creating fierce cutaway lines in its beautiful bodywork.

You can catch the one-off MINI and Airstream designed by Republic of Fritz Hansen during the Salone del Mobile and the INTERNI DESIGN ENERGIES show.

Special thanks to MINIspace for the photos and video!
