Marti's Profile

Founded by two creative and style-driven individuals to create a distinctive brand that takes you from home to work, and back. 

Mimi Marti

Mimi Marti

Mimi Marti loves her job because it does not feel like one. Instead, the Swiss-born Fashion and Interior Designer sees it as her passion, which allows her to rediscover her creativity through interaction with clients.

As the Interior Design Consultant, Mimi is the force behind the many Projects shown on this website. They attest to her ability to tune into the client’s many varied needs and make a space come to life.

“It’s intuition” Mimi simply says.

It is this innate sense of style that follows through to the Interior Design Consulting aspect of Marti Portfolio. Mimi's instinctive nature allows her to pick up on the subtle nuances that make a world of difference when transforming a mere space into a little world of its own.

“I have a photographic memory for colours, space and light. I can recall what a living environment looked like, and from there, I plan on developing the space’s variation of colours and textures as well,” Mimi shares.

Mimi’s well-tuned knowledge of space and proportions allow her to create the harmony and dimensions – the essential touches that appeal to clients. It is these differences that take a room to another level – evocative and irresistible.

Indeed, Mimi’ s Degree in Fashion Design and many years of experience have served her well throughout the years. Mimi’s creativity has flowed seamlessly from her and partner Hans Marti’s beginnings setting up metroweave, a Textile Importer/Distributor Showroom, in 1986, followed by Metro Interiors in 1993 and Marti Portfolio.

But what makes Mimi the essence and soul of Marti Portfolio is her honest love for what she does, which she is able to share with her clients, many of whom have sought her expertise continuously and with whom they have later developed a friendship.

“I have the pleasure of serving Generations of returning clients. Some of my dearest ones, I’ve been working with for many years, styling their Interiors. It’s the connection that becomes special,” Mimi says with a twinkle in her blue eyes.
