As natural stone connoisseurs in the construction industry, we realized early on that consumers were getting the short end of the stick: not only were they paying exorbitant prices for inferior products, but they were also unknowingly feeding into the unsustainable cycle of environmental waste. In an effort to right this injustice and provide higher quality, eco-friendly products, we consolidated our creative energies behind developing our thin-stone technology. By cutting our natural stones to just 1 mm in thickness, we essentially reduce the amount of material used for the same job by up to 80%. Besides reducing waste by utilizing so much less material, we also significantly reduce emissions since we can now carry more products per transport and cut our average installation time. The result is what we were initially inspired to aspire to a superior product that is both reasonably affordable and environmentally friendly.
Unfortunately, there were too many barriers to overcome with "middlemen" in a business to business situation. That is why we created MIKOL, a brand of lifestyle products that can be used daily showing the ability of natural stones. It was our way to raise awareness of a method to help out the environment without sacrificing quality.
We are the kind of people you find at a coffee shop with MacBooks open and drawings spread across the table. A group discussing, work, trips, and adventures that we plan to embark on.
Design is essential for a luxury fashion accessory company. And some of our greatest creative moments stems from happiness.
Here at MIKOL, we are proud to have a strong lasting relationship with our factory workshop. We have to since it's part of our company. =)
What really makes MIKOL different is that we aren't just a design firm. We also operate our own workshop, so every product is very hands on.
MIKOL's greatest joy is seeing others enjoy and share the products we've designed and produced.
The products we create is for a unique crowd that wants something different. Our focus is on a lasting impression for each individual.
