Herbert Krenchel Krenit Enamelists : 20th Century Vintage Furnishings & Design

HERBERT KRENCHEL Civil engineer born in 1922 in Copenhagen, Denmark

In 1953, Herbert Krenchel designed the enamel bowl: Krenit-bowl. The name Krenit is a combination of the name Krenchel and eternit (a fibre cement which is used for the coating on the bowl's outside). The bowl has a distinct design with its matt black outside, thin edge and clear colored enamel inside. In 1954, the bowl won a gold medal for its unique design in Triennalen (Milano, Italy). More than one million units produced by Torben Ørskov through 1966.
