MINI and Airstream Inc. collaborated for the so-called MINI Cooper S Clubman & Airstream concept that was designed by Republic of Fritz Hansen. The concept is going to be presented for the first time at the Interni Design Energies exhibition to be held at Universita degli Studi di Milano, during the Salone del Mobile show in Milan.

The Airstream will get a cabin designed particularly for surfers and beach-goers, featuring a sunbathing bed and waterproof interior. The trailer will have, among other features, new interpretations of Arne Jacobsen's Egg and Swan Chair and a table with four Series Seven chairs, therefore allowing more space for the inhabitants. The interior will feature wood panelling to give it a “surfer look”.

“Partnering with MINI was a given,” said Bob Wheeler, CEO of Airstream, Inc. “As one of the oldest manufacturers of recreational vehicles in the U.S. and MINI’s longstanding history producing unmistakable sport cars, we knew that we would make a dynamite team,” said Wheeler.

Designing details of the MINI Cooper S Clubman will consist of clean lines and bold colors such as lightning green, the companies explained in a statement. Most of the car will be black, with neoprene accents along with green trims. The 22ft trailer will have similar exterior details as the MINI.

“It has always been important for us to implement new products and ideas in unconventional ways. The concept MINI and Airstream, designed by Republic of Fritz Hansen, presents a surprisingly different way of using a MINI and an Airstream with a design, which consciously transcends into the world of the surfer. At the same time, we have achieved a successful co-operation with two international cult brands which authentically embodies the MINI attitude to life” said, Andreas-Christoph Hofmann, Head of MINI Brand Communication.
