After the gold-medal accolades for his Krenit bowl series, Danish designer Herbert Krenchel followed with these elegant salad servers based on the drawn-out, simple silhouette of chopsticks.
A “materials investigator” and civil engineer, Herbert preferred melamine for its practicality and polished effect. They are, after all, dishwasher safe. Normann Copenhagen reissued both these and the entire Krenit bowl collection. These servers pair beautifully with the melamine Krenit bowl.
“When Jan and I look at new designs for Normann Copenhagen, we take a very intuitive approach to the products,” according to cofounder Poul Madsen. “A picture can say much more than words and if we are both struck by what we see, we are interested.” Jan Andersen and Poul Madsen teamed up to create the Normann Copenhagen with a vision to shake up the contemporary design field. Now known the world over, they collaborate with new names and established talents from their native Denmark as well as internationally.
The company puts a premium on challenging conventional thinking in collections of tabletop products, lighting and furniture—with bold design strokes, innovative materials and a deft enjoyment of color. “We like products that have an original idea and a simple design, although we do not tie ourselves to a particular line,” Poul adds. “For us, the important thing is that the projects we get involved in bring something new into the world of design.”
