Cool metals lend an urban edge to the designs which serve as a medium to channel rich abstract expressions that interpret Millner and Muñiz’s passion for balance and movement. All materials are hand-cut, sanded, and polished for hours, and then carefully finished with oil, to achieve the daring, sculptural quality that is the hallmark of Mio Studio original.
