Turquoise Krenit "Bathtub" 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. Due to its great size, this style is called the Bathtub, and has not been in production previously due to the cost of production.
