I am excited about shapes and structures, said Danish designer Herbert Krenchel. The surface on a design object is important, because it makes people want to reach out for it. His hand-finished Krenit Bowl (1950s), with a bold-colored interior that pops against a matte black exterior, serves as an inviting vessel for all sorts of items. Its utility and form are purposeful: I also believe that there has to be a balance between function and aesthetics, continued Krenchel. A good design must therefore contain more than one aspect to make the perfect overall impression. Krenchels now-iconic Krenit (a combination of his name and Eternit, the name of a fiber cement he used in his work) was the recipient of the gold medal at the 1954 Milan Triennial. Introduced in the early 50s, the bowl was produced until 1966 and reintroduced by Normann Copenhagen in 2008. The Danish design company has stayed true to Krenchels specifications, finishing each piece by hand, but has updated the interior material from hard-to-maintain enamel to durable and lightweight melamine. The food-safe Krenit maintains its steel exterior it was conceptualized before the advent of microwaves, after all so be sure not to nuke it. Not dishwasher safe or for use with steel utensils. Clean by hand with warm water, then wipe thoroughly. We recommend oiling the edges regularly to prevent rust. Made in Denmark.
