Large Herbert Krenchel Designed Danish Modern Krenit Baby Blue and Black Bowl

About the Item

A vintage 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.) designed enamel bowl for Krenit from the 1970's. With a baby blue. powder blue (dare I say Tiffany blue) interior and a matte black exterior, this gorgeous piece of design exhibits restraint and exuberance concurrently. I wanted to learn more about Mr. Krenchel (I'm hoping you do too) so I'd like to offer this bio from the Norman Copenhagen site: "The enameled Krenit bowl won the gold medal at the 1954 Milan Triennale. "I am exited 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."
