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 classic yet contemporary expression. Its shape has set the trend for later designs of bowls, and the shape of the bowl is just as perfectly suited for the home today as back in 1953.Use the Krenit Bowl for nuts, snacks or simply as decoration.
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 excited 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."
