At Design Miami/Basel held from June 11 to 16, Audi will showcase an installation by Tim John: “Home of quattro.” The scenographer will portray milestones from quattro history as silhouettes. And two extraordinary Audi models will take center stage: the new Audi RS6 Avant – unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March – and the legendary 1984 Audi Sport quattro. In February 2013, the company with the four rings celebrated a remarkable achievement: the five-millionth Audi with quattro drive rolled off the assembly line.

The legendary commercial in which an Audi 100 CS quattro ascends the ski jump in Kaipola, Finland. Walter Röhrl’s spectacular triumph at the Pikes Peak Hill Climb. The five-millionth Audi with quattro drive. These are but three milestones in quattro’s eventful past that have been interpreted by Tim John.

Audi has been the exclusive automotive sponsor of Design Miami/Basel since 2006. The company is equally committed to design and technology alike. Audi broadcasts this dedication by collaborating on projects with international designers and architects such as Moritz Waldemeyer, Mirko Borsche, Bjarke Ingels, Clemens Weisshaar and Reed Kram. At this year’s event, Audi is partnering with Tim John, a scenographer from Hamburg. At his studio, he combines creative forces with graphic designers, illustrators and designers to craft interactive exhibits, still lifes for sets and other decorative purposes, and even room-sized installations. His output is characterized by attention to detail, a sense of humor, simplicity and a passion for craftsmanship.

Held from June 11 to 16 – as is its art-show sibling, Art Basel – Design Miami/Basel is the world’s premier event for design masterpieces and contemporary avant-garde design.
