In 1959, mono-a revolutionised the tables of 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.
At 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 real tableware classic, since mono-a combines noble design with the highest processing quality. Numerous awards and exhibitions at home and abroad popularised the mono-a cutlery. Today, it is considered to be the most-sold German design cutlery of the post-war era.
