We're excited to announce the first design for MONOKEI x Thesiscamper - Hidari.
Note from Monokei:
Thesiscamper, who is no stranger to the scene, was the first designer we worked with back in 2017 (Kira60, anyone?). I still remember sitting in a cafe with Thesis and a bunch of folks amazed at the signature side profile that would one day become a consistent motif throughout his designs. Thesis and I have worked closely on many other designs and renders and over time frequently talked keyboards over meals. It seemed fitting to mark the beginnings of MONOKEI x friends with the designer that worked with us in our first ever group buy.

The Hidari is a 1800 Southpaw layout keyboard with a few tweaks.
