Airstream Dreams

Oh how we love the ocean and dreaming of being a nomadic hipster. This year in celebration of MINI's 50th birthday, the folks at MINI have teamed up with Airstream and Republic of Fritz Hansen to bring our dreams into reality.

This 22-foot Airstream and MINI Cooper S Clubman concept is debuting at the Salone del Mobile Milan later this month.

The Airstream interior features new interpretations of Arne Jacobsen's classic mid-century Egg™ and Swan™ Chair and a table set up with four unique Series Seven™ chairs, allowing plenty of room for guests. Sleek wood paneling and bold colors top it off giving it the ultimate mod surf look. Kowabunga!
