MONO was founded in San Francisco, 2007, by Philadelphia-born industrial designer and musician
Daniel Kushner. After an inspirational four year carreer at internationally-acclaimed
design firm, IDEO, Daniel left with a vision for launching a global lifestyle
brand for the creative class, creating bespoke products while merging
his love of design with his love of music. Daniel’s work has been recognized
by The Industrial Design Society of America (IDEA Award, 2013)
Businessweek (Catalyst Award, 2007) and INDEX: Design To Improve Life (INDEX Award, 2007).
Daniel currently lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with his wife and three kids
where he continues to serve MONO as CEO / Design Director.
Behind the products, the initiatives and the amazing MONO community lies a nimble design studio.
Nestled on the water’s edge facing San Francisco, California, MONO HQ is our design lab
our creative hub and our corporate sales office. Design thinking drives everything we do.
Whether it is launching a product or shooting a video
our focus is on building an incredible
company and a respected brand to support the creative class.
