MINI is partnering with designer Asif Khan to continue its MINI LIVING programme — an exploration of architectural solutions to urban living challenges that kicked off earlier this year at the Salone del Mobile in Milan. While the debut installation explored forms of collaborative living, the follow-up in London addresses the need for a functional and flexible network of ‘third places’ in the urban environment. “Given the trend of urban densification we need to tap urban potentials in creative ways,” explains Oke Hauser, Creative Lead of MINI LIVING. “Given the amount of left-over public space we need to ask: how can we activate this spatial innercity potential and turn it into contributing functions for the urban community?”
