Universal Design Studio has been the most recent collaborator with MINI LIVING on the brand's concept micro-apartment, the Urban Cabin.

The cabin looks at future trends for urban living and demonstrates how compact spaces can be sociable and intuitive. The latest edition of the cabin featured in Beijing at China House Vision, a design festival running from 21st September - 4th November 2018. For this interpretation, Universal worked alongside Beijing-based architects Penda whose local knowledge helped adapt the cabin to suit the local cultures.

Following the end of the design festival, the cabin is set to relocate to a site in Hangzhou as its permanent home.
