Mint Inc. Fresh ideas in modern home accessories.
Mint Inc is a design collective founded by Alberto Mantilla, Anthony Baxter and Scott Henderson. Mint was formed simply to create an outlet for creative ideas that are generated by the three founding designers in the course of their professional careers when a client commission may not be present.
The Mint name was chosen because "mint" connotes freshness as in the literal sense of the mint plant, but also because it has industrial meanings, as in the place or source of manufacture and invention. Mint is "Refreshing".View other products from Mint Inc.
