MINI LIVING URBAN CABIN will be on view in the outdoor courtyard at A/D/O from October 6 – November 22, 2017. Designed by MINI LIVING in collaboration with New York-based architecture firm Bureau V, MINI LIVING URBAN CABIN at A/D/O aims to offer a solution to the modern challenges of urban living in the form of a micro-living, shared-housing concept. MINI founded A/D/O as a creative space dedicated to exploring new boundaries in design. A/D/O aims to stimulate great design and be a prolific source of new ideas that improve urban life.
The URBAN CABIN is a compact micro-house (approximately 160 square feet) designed to fit up to two people, featuring transformational aspects that enable both moments of privacy and interactions with the outside world in a clever and charming way. First launched at the London Design Festival 2017, URBAN CABIN is an ongoing project that explores the future of urban habitats based on the creative use of space. As a means of this exploration, the MINI LIVING team has designed the micro-house as a research space for relevant urban needs and local cultures.
