Zeug Flat­ware

c. 1995

Mono Zeug Michael Schneider Cutlery cooksandpoets 2

Michael Schnei­der conceived the Mono Zeug flat­ware set in 1995 to cele­brate the cente­nary of the vener­a­ble German manu­fac­turer, but for its design he looked back even further — to the tools Nean­derthals created in Mettmann, the very area his futur­is­tic imple­ments would be made. An ancient hand ax inspired the substan­tial knife, while a hand itself lent a scooped shape to the table spoon, while fingers formed the table fork and teaspoon. Each is made of matte-finished 18/10 stain­less steel, safe for the dish­washer. The forward-facing design contin­ues the legacy of the fifth-gener­a­tion company, beloved since 1895 for cutlery and acces­sories which can take as many 90 steps to fashion and will last more than a lifetime.
