mono ring - Litte Tasting Spoon in gift box

Mono Ring Welcome back! Mono Ring has been missing: on the table, in the office, at friends’ homes, and we missed it too. We were very uneasy about it.

So finally we have decided to bring Mono Ring back home. For us the Mono Ring story continues, but for many it is just about to start. This is going to be exciting. The designer Peter Raacke, together with the graphic designer Karl-Oskar Blase and then managing director Herbert Seibel, established the brand Mono at the late 1950’s and also designed the flatware experiment Mono Ring in 1962. Mono Ring was in the market for three decades and became a classic. The young designer Mark Braun, 47 years younger than Peter Raacke, only knew Mono Ring from the design literature. He studied the original design intensively and reinterpreted it for its reintroduction. Raacke’s idea of 1962 remains strong: flatware that does not need a drawer and does not have to be placed next to the plate. Instead, it hangs visibly and handy on a cross-shaped rack in the center of the table and diners around the table help themselves.

Wilhelm Seibel, Mono’s managing director, together with Mark Braun presented the results to Peter Raacke. After a intensive examination he gave his blessing: “You can do that!” In 2018, a new chapter in flatware history begins for Mono Ring. Revised and refreshed in ist form and available in five contemporary colors. Ist handle combines latest research and high-tech material. Hanging on the rack in the middle of the table – that is the proper place for Mono Ring at home, in diners, in cafeterias, in bistros, and in restaurants. Enjoy your meal.

Prof. Peter Raacke

With the design of the legendary mono-a flatware, the designer, born in Hanau in1928, made design history. He further developed many designs that have become part of German daily life. In his teaching capacity at design institutions in Darmstadt, Kassel and Ulm, as well as Professor of Industrial Design at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Hamburg, he influenced many a young designer. In 2003 he was honored with a retrospective – 50 Years of Peter Raacke Design – at the German Technology Museum in Berlin.

Since 1959 mono’s goal has been to develop designer products that follow no trend, they simply outlast all trends. Striving to produce items that do not decorate but function and have the highest standards of production, material and origin.

This has not been a rare occurrence. mono products have become part of permanent museum collections of modern and applied art. mono friends elicit pleasure on a daily basis.

The mono manufactory is in the North Rhine-Westphalian town of Mettmann. That is where Wilhelm Seibel I set the cornerstone, in 1895 with the founding of the Britanniawarenfabrik W. Seibel – the basis for the family enterprise, which today is led by the 5th generation. In 1959 the brand mono was established with the introduction of mono-a.

Much has changed since then, and much has remained the same in the production process at mono. With stubborn dedication traditional processes were kept under the belief that manual know how, the human eye and high end materials actually do make a difference.

Some 30 steps are used until the final flatware product is finished. The product is under constant evaluation, and only then and when the final touch is made, and perfection is reached, is the product released from the manufactory.

Many mono products (partially several times) have been recipients of awards, and are in the permanent collection of museums of modern and applied art.
