When mono-a launched in 1959, it revolutionised the world of cutlery by dispensing with any decorative design elements. mono-a was designed by Prof. Peter Raacke and is considered one of the most consistent achievements of industrial shaping.
mono-a was punched out of a single piece of stainless steel, the so-called monoblock. This is where the cutlery’s name comes from. Today, the knife is crafted from two pieces of steel. The handle is made of rustproof steel, whereas the blade is made of high-quality hardened steel.
While back then, mono-a was still considered avant-garde, it’s now a classic of dining culture that combines elegant design with the highest manufacturing quality.
Numerous awards and exhibitions domestically as well as abroad made mono-a famous. Nowadays, it is considered the top-selling German Post-War designer cutlery.
