Herbert Krenchel

herbert krenchel

Civil engineer Herbert Krenchel, born April 16, 1922 in Frederiksberg, Denmark.

In 1953, Herbert Krenchel designed an enamel bowl which became the famous Krenit Bowl. The name Krenit is a combination of the name Krenchel and eternit (a fibre cement which Herbert Krenchel worked with in his job as material engineer). 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 (Milano, Italy). Up until the production stopped in 1966 the bowl had been produced in more than 1 million units. 

Now the original minimalist design has been re-launched by Normann Copenhagen and is available in these beautiful colors and sizes.
