Red Krenit Bowl by Normann Copenhagen

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.

Designed in 1953, the name Krenit is a combination of the name Krenchel and eternit (a fiber cement which is used for the coating on the bowl’s outside). The bowl has a distinct design with its matte black outside, thin edge and clear colored enamel inside. In 1954, the bowl won a gold medal for its unique design in Triennalen (Milan, Italy). Up until the production stopped in 1966 the bowl had been produced in more than 1 million units.
