Mono Tools Cutlery Set by Michael Schneider for Mono
Updated: Jan 29, 2020
With unconventional ideas such as the “stone age” flatware mono-tools/zeug, Michael Schneider keeps surprising the design scene. The satin finished cutlery set is based on a primordial pattern andis dedicated to the Neanderthal whose remains were found very close to the mono factory in Germany.
The hand ax inspired the knife, the elongated fork is reminiscent of early skewing tools, and the spoon recalls a cupping hand. The chunky and curvilinear shapes of this cutlery set are so unique that no other cutlery gives the tabletop impact and ergonomic comfort of Zeug. This is how eating becomes a primal experience.
