The MIA PAPA studio consists of a MULTIDISCIPLINARY TEAM of designers dedicated to the highest levels of detail and creative expression. We believe that HISTORY and MODERNITY, IMAGINATION and DISCIPLINE, REFINEMENT and anomalies can and should COEXIST. Inspiration is found within the resulting tension, the singular integration of experiences. A creative cross-pollination in the studio inherently informs our architecture and interiors projects and furniture, lighting, textiles, home décor and product designs of every scale.
A multi-layered, stimulating sensory experience is at the center of Mia’s design approach. Through an exploration of materiality, color, forms and an intuitive juxtaposition of contemporary and vintage, architectural and organic, graphic and instinctual, she curates a wealth of experiences into every space.
