Krenit Jug

More than 50 years after the material scientist and civil engineer, Herbert Krenchel, designed the iconic Krenit bowl, the minimalist design classic was put into production again by Normann Copenhagen. The re-launch has been a resounding success and in 2016, Normann Copenhagen celebrates the great design by expanding the series with the original Krenit jug. 

The jug, which Herbert Krenchel designed in 1966, is a natural extension of the best-selling Krenit range of bowls and kitchen utensils. The characteristic sharp edge and matt exterior, in contrast with the shiny and colorful inside, gives the Krenit jug its distinctively recognizable design. No decoration and adornments, but a streamlined and well-balanced relationship between form and material - exactly like the Krenit bowl.

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."
