Mono - Japanese word meaning “tangible object”
Square - Public place for community gatherings
MONOSQUARE was started by a husband and wife, Michael and Namie. Namie, originally from Japan, came to the US in 2000 and met Michael in 2001 while studying in New York. In the beginning of 2011, they had an idea to open an online shop to introduce products made by craftsmen and designers in Japan to a new audience. In the beginning of 2012, MONOSQUARE.com was launched. All products are curated by Namie & Michael.
