    Herbert Krenchel


    Herbert Krenchel graduated with a master in Engineering at the Technical University of Denmark. Herbert Krenchel’s research focused on materials and fibre reinforcement. Since the 1950’s, simultaneously with his research, Herbert Krenchel has worked with design.  The enameled Krenit Bowl, won the golden medal on the  1954 Milan Triennale.

    On his design philosophy: “I am excited 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 a 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.”
