In 1959, mono-a revolutionised tables across the world. By forgoing all design elements that normally belong to the exuberant embellishment of cutlery, the foundation was laid for modern, industrial design of everyday objects.
In the beginning, the mono-a cutlery designed by Prof. Peter Raacke was punched out of a single piece of stainless steel, a so-called monoblock. This is also where the industrial-sounding name comes from. Today, the knife consists of two kinds of steel: the handle is made of rustproof stainless steel, the blade of high-quality hardened steel.
What was considered avant-garde in 1959 is now a true tableware classic, since mono-a combines elegant design with highest quality processing. Numerous awards and exhibitions in several countries have made the mono-a cutlery well-known.
It is today considered the best-selling German design of the post-war period. The mono-a Fish Cutlery includes the fish fork and the fish knife from the mono-a cutlery series.
