Herbert Krenchel graduated with a Master of Engineering from the Technical University of Denmark with his mind firmly set on a research career focussing on materials and fiber reinforcement. However since the 1950’s, simultaneously with his research, Krenchel also developed a successful interest in industrial design. His most renowned design is probably the enameled Krenit bowl which won the gold medal at the 1954 Milan Triennale and which fulfilled Krenchel’s passion for shapes, textures and structures. Krenchel believes that the surface of a designed object is important because it makes people want to reach out for it and once they do must satisfy their curiosity and innate desire for balance between function and aesthetics. A good design must therefore contain more than one aspect to make the perfect overall impression. Kerchell’s inspiration is absorbed from the surrounding environment and as such can’t be explained, design is self expression, it is a way to create a world just the way you want it.
