MIM Roma (Mobili Italiani Moderni) was founded in 1958 by Ennio Fazioli, who was at that time just 28 years old. When their first showroom opened, the display was designed by Ico Parisi who worked for the manufacturer until 1960. At the time that MIM was founded spirits were high: scientific and technological discoveries would catalyse growth and modernity. Fazioli believed that everybody deserved beautiful, modern design. MIM moved towards a certain lightness and rationalisation that borrowed from Nordic and American aesthetics yet with a true Italian elegance. The resulting collection from MIM is therefore a combination of 'refined linearity with a sober opulence: a typically Italian matching of simplicity with the exceptional'.
