UPDATED: MINI & Airstream By Fritz Hansen

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 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 Seven and Swan 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.
