MIO was founded by the Salm brothers (Isaac, the numbers guy and Jaime, the design guy) with the objective of combining business rigor with environmentally and socially progressive design. MIO's success is the result of Jaime and Isaac's vision and the contributions of hard working and creative designers, interns, manufacturers, engineers and business professionals.
MIO is a design company dedicated to creating the most sustainable and innovative design experiences in the market. Serving the needs and desires of our loyal customers and consulting clients guides our design, marketing, manufacturing and consulting activities.
Based out of Philadelphia ("the workshop of the world" in the late 1800's) MIO builds on a strong local manufacturing base and a diverse pool of creative individuals that is ever present in the city.
Since our founding in 2001, we have encouraged our customers to grow into a greener, healthier, happier and more profitable future. Our design focuses on the needs of people today and aims towards the technologically advanced and responsible product experiences of tomorrow.
Guided by the company's philosophy of "Responsible Desire" MIO has introduced design that strategically harnesses the most eco-intelligent aspects of conventional manufacturing, marketing and distribution methods. This approach has resulted in the integration of existing technologies and industries into a profitable value-added system that is both socially and environmentally responsible.
