Isaac Monté is a material driven designer with a fascination for unusual materials and an urge to master and manipulate these materials. Often his work is described as bio-based design due to the strong link with science and biology. Isaac is connected to Willem de Kooning Academy Rotterdam where he teaches Product Design and Sustainability. 

 

The work of Isaac Monté has been shown in a variety of museums, galleries and exhibitions in Belgium, France, The Netherlands, Italy, USA, Austria, Hungary, United Arabian Emirates, China, United Kingdom, Ireland and Germany. His work is part of several private collections in Europe and the USA. "The Meat Project" is part of the permanent collection of The Centre Pompidou, Paris.
