The project was started by the industrial designer Benjamin Unterluggauer and has since been further developed together with the designer John Hayden. The aim is to produce the connector in sufficient quantities at a fair price using the 3D printing process.

The clamp connector (formerly called "MIKADO") won the 2017 IKEA Foundation design prize and was awarded the third prize in the Schleswig-Holstein 2018 ideas competition. In 2019 the project was included in the archive of the German Design Graduates.

Prototypes of the clamp have been in use since 2018. At the beginning of 2019, a pop-up shop was planned and set up for the design label NO TALENT. MOKIT is finally available commercially since the beginning of 2021.

With a new emphasis on curating exhibition projects, curator and spatial designer Neele Marie Denker has joined the team in 2023.
