Our story

If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door

Out of intense curiosity while I hunt for my first architectural job, my partner, Patrick and I purchased our first 3d printer and spent some time learning, understanding and testing their capabilities. After quite some time with no better prospects in the job-hunting side and the strong desire to make, explore and play - MIMAW was born. 

MIMAW is an 'ideas-based' design and making studio.  We operate in the intersection of craft, design and technology.  

Inspired by our studio's philosophy, 'Araw-araw' (Tagalog for everyday), our works celebrate the everyday objects - taking inspiration from architecture, urban artefacts, infinite play and the daily objects we often overlook.  

we always embed function, technique and play in all our pieces, no matter how whimsical they may be.
