Mono V Mark Braun Germany 2

Intro­duc­ing Mono V, a true master­piece of flat­ware design by Mark Braun. The inspi­ra­tion for this exquis­ite collec­tion was drawn from the humble dispos­able fork, where func­tion meets mini­mal­ism. Mono V embod­ies the essence of luxury by focus­ing on stabil­ity and firm­ness through its sleek form.

Designer Mark Braun embarked on an exten­sive journey of mate­r­ial and shape explo­ration, leading to a bril­liant yet mini­mal­ist solu­tion — a simple bend at the end of each piece. The result is awe-inspir­ing: a V‑shaped emboss­ing in the handle that provides the neces­sary stabil­ity, allow­ing the use of resource-saving mate­r­ial — a mere 1.5mm-thin sheet of stainless steel.

This excep­tional collec­tion comprises six pieces, includ­ing stan­dard uten­sils, a dessert fork, and an espresso spoon.

The char­ac­ter­is­tic V design, grace­fully dimin­ish­ing along the handle’s length, not only ensures stabil­ity but also creates a strik­ing visual appeal — a harmo­nious blend of sharp angles and organic curves. The inter­play of surfaces, angles, and gradi­ents casts capti­vat­ing patterns of light and shadow.
