Krenit Bowl

industrial design

Few brands do homeware like Danish design company Normann Copenhagen. They work with some of the world’s greatest designers to produce simple and contemporary furniture and accessories that have us continuously inspired. With a simple and pure expression, the Krenit range is a contemporary classic which enables a perfect interplay between function and aestheticism. Originally designed by Herbert Krenchel in the 1950s, the bowl's characteristic sharp edge creates a balance between material and form, giving it its minimalist expression. Its shape has set the trend for later designs of bowls, and is just as perfectly suited for the home today as then.

The Krenit Bowl is available in six different diameters making the range ideal for fruit, salad or simply as decorative pieces. Mix and match to make your own expression.

Herbert Krenchel graduated with a Master of Engineering from the Technical University of Denmark, and since the 1950s, simultaneously with his research, Krenchel has worked with design. The enamelled Krenit Bowl won the gold medal at the 1954 Milan Triennale. On his approach to product design, he tells us:

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.

The Krenit Bowl range is available to buy through Skandium.
