Mono A is the foundation of the history of Mono.
The designer Peter Raacke created this reduced design on behalf of Herbert Seibel (3rd generation of the family business) at the end of the 1950s. The goal was to develop a flatware with a timeless design that could be produced easily and sustainably. After its launch in 1959, designer Raacke and manufacturer Seibel realized that the design was too progressive, the radical simplicity did not meet the taste of retailers and customers.
In 1973, fourteen years later, Mono A won its first important design award, the Federal Prize for Good Form. Today, it is considered an absolute design classic, has won dozens of awards and has proven itself again and again in timeless aesthetics and relevance.
