Surfs Up – Mini Cooper S Clubman Airstream Combo
Born from the collaboration between Mini, Airstream and Danish furniture designer Fritz Hansen, the 6.80-metre-long Airstream trailer is billed as a stylistic vision of the future of travel, the theme of the project is a “mobile living” concept with a beachfront motif design.
Details include the use of surfer-dude “wetsuit” neoprene, fresh colours and flower prints, and the option of opening up the trailer on one side and making yourself comfortable on a built-in sun-bathing bed.
This mobile “home from home” feeds that mythical dream of surfing and watersports enthusiasts… always hunting for the perfect wave, at home anywhere around the world. It must be the ultimate fusion of design and function.
Since it is not ordinarily available with a trailer coupling, the MINI Cooper S Clubman had to be specially modified to fulfil its role in this adventurous concept.
The design study was unveiled to the public for the first time at the INTERNI Design Energies exhibition in Milan on 22 – 27 April 2009.
What’s taking you so long Mini?
