Universita degli Studi di Milano: Interni Legacy – Colour One: Mini by Scholten and Baijings. BMW presented the installation Colour One for MINI by Scholten and Baijings. This work by the internationally renowned Dutch design duo explored the design of a MINI One by examining its composition down to the smallest details and, in so doing, dissecting the design process per se. The upshot was a thought provoking and inspiring new interpretation that draws on the familiar stylistic devices of Scholten and Baijings, color and material, to query the rules of automotive design and shed new light on them.
