At this year’s Salone del Mobile in Milan, taking place from, Mini has teamed up with London architectural firm Studiomama to present an installation entitled Mini Living – Built By All. This living concept enables close collaboration between residents and architects, making it an excellent way of addressing each individual’s requirements.
The project extends the underlying themes of Mini Living (e.g. making creative use of a small living area) to include the principle of participation. I.e. people, their individual needs and ideas now play a more centre role. “The installation turns people into active creators and puts them back at the heart of the design process. We believe the quality of a living space is determined by how well the residents identify with their home”, says Oke Hauser, Creative Lead of Mini Living.
Besides the installation, Mini is once again setting up an experience area. The Factory of Ideas gives visitors the opportunity to create their own visions for the living spaces of the future in the form of models. The installation itself is housed in an adjacent room and showcases four example living space concepts along with a public area, such as a communal kitchen or outdoor gym.
