In a special collaboration, Mini has contributed a Cooper S Clubman to which Airstream has hitched a 22-foot trailer with an interior design from Republic of Fritz Hansen, a Danish furniture designer. Designed for surfers, the trailer has a waterproof interior and a sun bathing bed, while the Clubman has a black exterior with neoprene-look accents to mimic the style of a wetsuit. Republic of Fritz Hansen used its egg and swan-style chairs for the trailer.

The car and trailer combination will debut at the alone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan, Italy, and be on display from April 21 to April 30. The combo is a one-off, and won't be offered for sale, but will be on display at other appropriate events around the world, according to Mini.
