1. PERPETUUM

Random Studio for MINI

For the now-closed A/D/O creative space in Brooklyn, MINI turned to Amsterdam-based Random Studio to devise an installation marking the global launch of the new MINI Electric Vehicle.

Claire Fontaine

For its AW20 show, Dior gave Paris-based collective Claire Fontaine carte blanche, resulting in a graphically emphatic space at Musée Rodin.

5. KENZO AW20

Bureau Betak

At Bureak Betak’s production of Kenzo’s AW20 show, plastic was the star material. In fact, the set will be an enduring symbol of the agency’s commitment to the planet: the massive inflatable tubes, installed outdoors at the Institut National de Jeunes Sourds de Paris for Felipe Oliveira Baptista’s first Kenzo collection, will be reused ad infinitum in the brand’s shows, events and the like.
