Quality of life in small communal spaces


“As an urban brand, MINI is fully aware of the complex architecture and mobility challenges affecting the inhabitants of cities—explains Esther Bahne, head of the company’s brand strategy and business innovation—. The 'MINI Living. Forests' installation reflects our philosophy on the creative use of the space in communal urban areas. The project resumes the dialogue on life in future cities that we launched with the installation presented at the 2016 Salone del Mobile in Milan”.

Designed by the architect Asif Khan, the project consists of three reduced-format themed rooms to complement the daily activity between the working day and the return home in future cities. The proposal has the goal of promoting a specific use for each space: relaxing, socialising or boosting productivity, and incorporates plants to improve the quality of life in the city.

The installation is located in London’s trendy Shoreditch district and can be visited during the London Design Festival until 25 September.
