Mini, Airstream collaborate on concept for Italian show

One of the last things we expect to see is a Mini towing around a 22-foot Airstream trailer, but that's exactly what will be on display in Milan, Italy, at the Salone del Mobile show in April.

The one-off concept brings together the two iconic brands to produce a combination that surely will please beachgoers. For a modern styling touch, the duo tapped furniture producers Republic of Fritz Hansen to work its magic on the Cooper S Clubman tow car and the Airstream trailer.

Taking a modern surfer theme, Fritz Hansen left the majority of the Clubman jet black, but added black wetsuit neoprene accents with lightning green trim. The Airstream also receives black and green exterior accents, but the majority of its hallmark bare aluminum body remains exposed.

The Airstream's waterproof interior is outfitted with a table, numerous Fritz Hansen chairs, a sunbathing bed and wood paneling.
