mono classic - Teapot with integrated warmer 1,5 L

The mandate for designer Tassilo von Grolman was to create a new aesthetic for the enjoyment and enhancement of tea drinking. The result was a teapot with its own unconventional harmony. Function and contemporary design were truly synthesized in the mono classic teapot. The pot made of heat resistant borosilicate glass is cradled in a stainless steel frame.
Tea leaves are placed in the stainless steel mesh sieve, and boiling water is poured.
The tea leaves unfold freely, as they release their full aroma; after the appropriate steeping time – 3 to 5 minutes – the sieve is removed and placed in a caddy (bowl).

mono - Home of the German producer of handcrafted design originals

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.
