Décor meets duty in these steel bowls by Herbert Krenchel. The saturated color of the enamel lining is accentuated by the sharp edge of the fine lip. Mr. Krenchel’s shapes for this group also influenced modern bowl design. A classic too beautiful for us to resist, the Krenit collection took the gold medal at Le Trienale in Milan in 1954 due to their looks—and the technical challenges initially involved in enameling such thin steel. The Danish designer succeeded with manufacturing partner Torben Ørskov. It was reissued with improvements in 2008 by Normann Copenhagen.
