Overview

Design by Peter Raake, 1959.
By Mono Flatware.

Eat and serve with unforgettable styling that is today part of a modern classic collection: the mono-a Escargot Fork. When mono-a was introduced in 1959, it heralded a new era. The tableware industry had never seen anything like it before - a design that radically rejected all superfluous elements. It was the end of traditional "Gemütlichkeit". At the forefront was design. The mono-a Collection unleashed strong emotions, ranging from total rejection to overwhelming enthusiasm. The superior quality of this flatware was also revolutionary, as was its innovative and material saving manufacturing process that proved to be ahead of its time in terms of ecological significance. The handles of the spoons and forks are delicate in their perception, yet sturdy in their usage. The bowls of the flatware spoons and forks are deliberately thinned to make them more "palate friendly" - after all you want to taste the food and not the flatware. The only thing that has changed is the perception of the flatware - yesterday it was avant garde, today it is a classic. Some things cannot be improved.
