About Us

People often wonder about the spelling of the “Ohmega” in Ohmega Salvage. Our name is a synthesis of two concepts: ‘Ohm’s law,’ the measure of electrical resistance to power (as they said to themselves “Hum, Hum”), and the Greek symbol Omega, the final letter in the Greek alphabet, signifying that an object can be reborn even when at the apparent end of its life.

Black Logo

The original logo for the store was designed by a local artist, who also designed album covers for many famous rock groups at the time. The artist tried to capture the womb-like appearance to the “O” in Ohmega, further suggesting the rebirth of salvaged objects.
