How would you summarize the vision of the brand in a few words? How does the products represent this vision?
Based in Dover, New Hampshire, New England Mountain Equipment (NEMO) is known for its breakthroughs in forward-thinking design. Before founding NEMO, Cam Brensinger was in charge of creating the next generation of space suits. This gives an idea of the degree of engineering and technology involved in the brand's products. Their philosophy in a few words:
We have a design philosophy we live by, which starts by asking the most fundamental question: should we even be making this product? See, a lot of brands just try to make a different version of what’s already out there, but at NEMO we believe the world has enough stuff already. We have vowed to only design and create things that provide a meaningfully better experience. And if they don’t, we don’t make them. It’s that simple.
In addition, their goal is also incomparable comfort, which sets them apart from other brands that concentrate their efforts on other technical aspects of the outdoors. Their goal is to improve the outdoor adventure experience. '' Design like you give a damn '' means, never be satisfied and always seize an opportunity to improve what goes from the drawing board to the factory. It is impossible to find a solution if the problem is not understood first.
