About

A Design Re-Emerges

Simplicity and balance is the essence of the Krenit series. More than 50 years after Herbert Krenchel, materials researcher and civil engineer designed the Krenit salad bowl and serving set, the minimalistic design is now launched by Normann Copenhagen. The salad set first went into production in 1953.

Herbert Krenchel

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."
