MIMA Light

MIMA Architects as Architects

MIMA Light is an iconic object, pure and sophisticated like a minimal art sculpture. The base of the scheme is lined with mirrors, an architectural gesture influenced by the minimalist sculpture of artists such as Donald Judd, John Mccracken and Robert Morris. The rational external design is complemented with comfortable interiors — clad with pinewood and featuring chrome details.

Each unit contains cooking and living spaces, sleeping accommodation, and bathroom facilities. Glass façades allow better ventilation and air circulation, while electricity is located in a centrally positioned core wall, and is distributed laterally. To heat water, there is the possibility of installing an electric boiler connected to solar panels. For extremely warm locations, MIMA recommends using thicker glazing with high UV values.

The entire home is manufactured in a warehouse before being transported to site. Intended to be simpler to assemble than any previous MIMA product, the house is available in four sizes, ranging from 7.2 meters and 13.2 meters in length. Designed for market sectors that cover tourism, temporary homes, and vacation homes, the dwelling can be distributed to all countries located in the european union.

MIMA Light is the ultimate achievement in modular construction, combining an outstanding lightness with an iconic and minimal image. This home seems to levitate above the ground due to the lining of the base with mirrors. Inspired by the minimalist sculpture of artists such as Donald Judd, John McCracken and Robert Morris, the new MIMA Light aims to be epitome of sophistication, synthesizing a surprising combination of sculptural depuration and interior comfort.

Outside, a sober and sharp object can be appreciated from any angle - so light that it seems to levitate. Inside, the comfort of a uniform coating in pine - combined with the elegance and minimalism of the details, the chromatic choice and the quality of components and materials - results on a very seducing home.

MIMA Light is simple to produce and more practical to achieve than any other Mima product. This module is completely produced and assembled in factory and then transported to the local site, ready to be implemented. It is perfect for a market sector that covers tourism, temporary homes and vacation homes. This house is available in two sizes: MIMA Light and MIMA Light Plus, with 9m and 12m length, respectively, and it is currently distributed to all countries in the European Union.
