The story behind our name
NIMU has been inspired by Numa Pompilius, the peaceful second king of Rome and his divine consort, the water nymph Aegeria.
Numa is credited with the formulation of the 12 months calendar that we still use nowadays. Aegeria, his consort, was turned into a fountain by the goddess Diana, due to her tears of sorrow after Numa´s death.
This fountain provided clear waters to the ancient Roman baths “Thermae”, where citizens enjoyed bath rituals.
Both of them have a significance in our brand inspiration, Time and Water, life and joy.
