Jordi Quintana and IMO

"IMO starts from a feeling of nostalgia for the old, the simple and the union between them."

Jordi, Quinta for friends, is a wood craftsman who creates objects with soul. That part of things unseen, but feel. His method of production ensures that each of its creations have something unique that will never be replicated in other piece.

He has always been a lover of simple things and the beauty of nature, so it was not necessary that ecology became a trend for his project IMO saw the light. Jordi observes people and nature, and he finds items with dual use. He recycles and redesigns, and where we see an old hammer handle, he sees the legs for a new stool. Thinking Mu loves his ability to link seemingly unconnected points between the old and the new, environment and people.
