Krenit Bowl

When the enameled steel Krenit bowl was first released in the 1950s, its designer Herbert Krenchel said, “The idea was to make a beautiful bowl, preferably so functional and delicate that it was equally suited for use in the kitchen, on the dining table and as a decoration in the sitting room.” Production ceased in 1966, but Normann Copenhagen recently reissued the versatile design in white, black, turquoise, purple, green, and red.
