This beautiful Krenit Bowl Ø 25cm was originally designed by Herbert Krenchel and is produced by the Danish manufacturer Normann.
Krenchel may seem an unlikely hero of the 20th century Scandinavian design movement. He originally trained in his native Denmark as a materials and civil engineer, but became fascinated by the potential of modern manufacturing. In 1954 came his breakthrough, when his Krenit bowl received the gold medal at the Milan Triennale. The Krenit series has since become a trademark of Scandinavian aesthetics and Krenchel's own philosophy of personal style sounds very ahead of its time: "Design is a way of creating things just the way you want them to be."
Krenchel experimented with millimetre-thin layers of tin, overlaid on the outside with a sand-blasted fibre compound and coated on the inside with a contrasting layer of enamel. The re-issued steel and enamel Krenit Bowl Ø 25cm remains faithful to Krenchel's aim of creating a bowl that would look equally beautiful in the kitchen, on the dining table or displayed around the house as an object in its own right. The new editions are even dishwasher-safe. They work beautifully as a set, or simply on their own.
