MIO design

MIO is a design company based out Philadelphia in the US who describe their philosophy as being driven by 'responsible desire'. Run by Jaime and Isaac Salm, all of their products use materials that can be easily recycled within existing infrastructures, fit into closed loop manufacturing systems available today or fit seamlessly with natural ecosystems. Their capsule lamp above is made from 100% wool felt and is recyclable and compostable.

Most of they products are well designed and make good use of sustainable materials, such as the ModuTiles above which are made from reconstituted cork and the Nomad System wall dividers below which are made from recycled kraft paper.
