MINI celebrates its brand design heritage and urban appeal with two exhibits at the Salone Del Mobile 2011 in Milan.

Here is a set of pics of MINI's contribution to the Milan Design Week event.

MINI has created two exhibits for the 2011 Salone Del Mobile in Milano celebrating its models embedded in design art.

The first appears at Milan's state university and is called the 'MINI Sintesi', created by MINI design chief Anders Warming. It features profiles of MINI's as they were designed throughout the brand's history fitted together to create a 3D assembly of their contour lines.

The second exhibit involves various 'hanging' MINI vehicles placed in an abstract urban-evoking collage.

A crew will also be shuttling between the exhibits and broadcasting events on MINI's YouTube channel.
