MINI Thailand Design Celebration

The iconic MINI car design is taken to new heights with the help of Thailand’s most talented artists, designers and creatives

03 Feb 2011

Late last year 20 of Thailand’s best-known and most prolific designers, artists and other creatives joined forces with MINI to re-interpret the classic car’s design.

Celebrating half a Century of MINI, the event saw 20 fibreglass 1:3 scale models of the car handed over to everyone from architects to fashion designers and university students, inviting them to “express their individual creativity”.

There were some amazing designs, including a great bed-topped MINI by fashion label Sretsis and Living etc’s white sketched MINI.

 

 

We also love The Eight’s chocolate MINI and Amarin’s silver studded interpretation of the classic design.

 

 

The MINIs were all on display in Thailand at the end of last year and will this month be auctioned to raise money for The Reading Room; a non-profit organisation operated by The Foundation for the Promotion and Preservation of Thai Art.

Check out all 20 designs below.
