Meet Davy Kho, the dazzling designer behind the Mima pushchair brand
With their intelligent and high-tech designs, Mima pushchairs stand out from the crowd. We meet their creator Davy Kho
It’s a novel approach, but one that seems to work for Kho, who wants Mima to remain a small, family-run company. It currently employs six people in the office and four in the factory, although the high volume of early sales figures for the Xari and Kobi pushchairs – available in most of Europe, Australia, Israel and South Korea, while America is showing a keen interest – suggest this might be easier said than done. “It does scare me a little bit,” says Kho. “I’m a firm believer in letting the company grow organically, without any outside investment. I must say I find the thought of a big company, employing hundreds of people, a little overwhelming.”
Growth does seem inevitable, thanks to Kho turning his award-winning designer’s expertise to the pushchair, and coming up with two models that look and feel unlike anything else currently
out there. Ultra sleek and stylish with an intelligent design that allows the pushchair to adapt easily to the needs of parent and baby (and in the case of the Kobi, to also expand with your family’s growing size), both models were partly inspired by sports car design. As a result, they ooze
a sophistication way beyond the norm.
