Who is Monome?
Monome is Brian Crabtree and Kelli Cain. They met in art school where their initial collaborations included electro-mechanical installations, films, and music. now they live and work in the mountains of upstate new york where they also tend apple orchards, nubian goats, streams, and forests.
Monome is operated on a human scale. They use local suppliers and manufacturers with whom they've created long-term, trusting relationships. environmental and economic sustainability are critical considerations in their design process.They believe in beautiful design and quality craftsmanship. editions are produced in short runs according to demand. staying small affords the flexibility to pursue interesting new directions, not simply commodify established trends.
in 2013 they were joined by Trent Gill who continues to contribute innumerably.
