Krenit Bowl

By Normann Copenhagen


  • Description

    Genuine Krenit fans now have good cause to feel happy! Normann Copenhagen will be extending its series of Krenit bowls, which were designed back in 1953 by Herbert Krenchel. Just as back in those times the original Krenit bowl is now available in an even greater number of sizes and colors.
    More than 50 years after Herbert Krenchel, the materials researcher and civil engineer, designed the Krenit-bowl, the original minimalist design has been re-launched by Normann Copenhagen. The Krenit-bowl is a perfect example of good Danish design and through the years it has become a design icon.
    With a simple and pure expression, the Krenit range is a contemporary classic which enables a perfect interplay between function and aestheticism. Its characteristic sharp edge creates a balance between material and form, giving the bowl its modern expression. Even its shape has set the trend for later designs of bowls, and the shape of the bowl is just as perfectly suited to the modern home today as then.
    Herbert Krenchel says: "In 1953 the idea was to make a beautiful bowl, preferably so functional and delicate that it was equally suited for use in the kitchen, on the dining table and as a decoration in the sitting room. As a material researcher I really concentrated on getting the different materials to match and look good together as well as making them equally compatible to use together. Enamel is a fantastic material, and even today my heart yearns for an enamel bowl. It is fantastic that the Krenit bowl is coming into production once more".

    Herbert Krenchel

    Herbert Krenchel graduated with a Master of Engineering from the Technical University of Denmark. Herbert Krenchel’s research was focused on materials and fiber reinforcement. Since the 1950’s, simultaneously with his research, Herbert Krenchel has worked with design. The enameled Krenit bowl won the gold medal at the 1954 Milan Triennale.

    "I am exited about shapes and structures. The surface on a design object is important because it makes people want to reach out for it. I also believe that there has to be a balance between function and aesthetics. A good design must therefore contain more than one aspect to make the perfect overall impression. My inspiration comes from several things surrounding me – it can’t be explained. For me design is a way to express yourself – it’s a way to create things just the way you want it."
