We always get to see the final product. We buy it, consume it but rarely do we ever see or question the process of its composition. The INTERNI Legacy exhibition staged by the renowned Italian design magazine INTERNIpresented MINI as one of the main protagonists with the design installation COLOUR ONE for MINI by the Dutch designers Scholten & Baijings at the Cortile del 700 of Milan University (Università degli Studi di Milano). The installation comprised a MINI ONE which had been deconstructed down to the last single component to further investigate and explore every aspect of its design. Through this process, they were able to reveal the essence of each part and began giving new meaning to each component in order to put it back together. Using color, texture and new materials, they began giving the MINI ONE an entirely fresh perspective to car design.
Well, the only way I see this happening is in an extended ride north. When I say that I mean a long, terrible, trying trip… - The Idea of North, by Glenn Gould, 1967
The first Rapha Continental UK ride had its fair mix of weather – rain, then sun, then a bit of hail, then sun again - changing from one valley to the next, or as one storm cloud succeeded another in the wind. Luckily, the snow held off until we’d finished riding.
