Nomad Mobili - Jorge Engel

Jorge Artist


Jorge Engel grew up in Mexico City, where he remembers attending his first formal art class at age six, bound and determined to become an automotive designer. By age eight he had changed his career path to that of architecture. Following a family migration to the US and graduation from Washington University School of Architecture, Jorge built a successful practice designing luxury homes, public spaces, shopping centers and commercial buildings. He also designed custom furniture and produced fine art. 

Jorge’s projects combine modern aesthetics with a strong commitment to energy efficiency and sustainable design. His first environmental materials company, Gridcore System International, made high-tech honeycomb panes from recycled fiber. He led a construction management company and a real estate development firm, both of which specialized in renewable energy generation and green building principles. 

In addition to being the designer of the NomaDen® gazebo, Jorge is Chief Operating Officer of Malama Composites, and heads their product development group. His design sensibilities and dedication to new, more sustainable methods of creating high performance buildings makes him a valuable member of the Nomad Mobili team.

"Our work attempts to bring a sense of freedom and movement to the objects while asking an important question: What can these new materials do that others can’t? In other words, how can we demonstrate the unique properties of bio-composites through our furniture designs?"
