Designer Herbert Krenchel designed the bowls in 1953, and in 2008, at 86, he was approached by Normann Copenhagen to approve the reissue of this famous piece of Danish design in melamine.
The simple low-walled bowl and servers were originally manufactured by Torben Ørskov in Denmark. Made in 1mm-thick, cold-pressed steel, they had a coloured, gloss enamel interior and a sandblasted, matt-black finish.
What makes it special
The slow-rising shape and contrasting matt exterior and gloss interior saw the Krenit awarded a gold medal at the 1954 Milan Triennale. The servers fuse function and ’50s modern aesthetic.
