Interview with mnmur designers

Mnmur is a beautiful Italian reality, of those that once you found, you want to know more, see and know who created it … On their website, however, this information doesn’t exist, there are first of all their products. Mnmur creates accessories using recycled materials, mainly inner tubes of bicycle wheels, but also seat belts, nylon from umbrellas, truck tarpaulins … They are in some shops in Italy and you can purchase from their website in the whole world. And for the information I want, I contact them for a brief interview, which is answered by Marco.
Q – On your website you wrote only that you are two young designers. Can you tell us more?
A – Mnmur has two years of life, begins as a hobby and grows in free time from work. After a while it shows to the public, find encouragement and in a short time becomes a full time job.
Q – Why the idea of creating accessories with so atypical materials?
A – For us the atypical goods are common raw materials! The use of recycled materials is an important resource. For the moment they are available in abundance, cost little or nothing and have a high creative potential. Obviously, to do something good you must have some ideas and get busy practice, but once you leave you do not stop.
Q – What is the philosophy behind your work?
A – Hard to say … The consciousness to do a challenging and constructive job, be independent and free from alienating mechanisms, show that people can live by inventing something, get involved.
Q – Tell us how your creations born …
A – We start from our needs and what we like. We take care both of the aesthetics and the functionality: a bag should be as elegant as resistant. We look for simplicity in the lines as in the technical implementation, we try to take advantage of the properties and characteristics of matter. We follow the entire process step by step, from prototype to the publication of the finished product on our site. A maniacal work!
Q – Plans for the future?
A – So many, the problem is finding the time …
Thank you to Marco for the time he dedicated to me, and a big good luck to the mnmur team for all their projects!
