Amsterdam design duo Scholten & Baijings have created a veritable cabinet of curiosities by way of dissecting the iconic design classic of all time – The Mini One. By paring back the design layer by layer they created a standalone art creature.Their distinctive style was apparent ,with muted colours and textures, seat belts upholstered and the outer shell transformed into a skeletal state the Mini One was recreated sketchbook style.The result being a reflection of the Mini’s past present and future.Colour One can be seen at the University of Milan as part of the INTERNI legacy as part of the Salone de Mobile.
Scholten & Baijings peeled the Mini One like an onion, layer by layer, while analyzing the car as such and its individual components. Applying their highly conceptual approach, the designers questioned virtually every aspect of design along the way, extracting the essence of each component, whether this was revealed at its core or during the dismantling process itself.Check out Scholten & Baijings
