Normann Copenhagen has just released a new line of servingware inspired by traditional Danish textiles.
Designed by Gry Fager the line includes plates, buttering boards, eggcups, a milk jug, a sugar bowl and a decanter.
The Mormor series is made for the modern kitchen and dining table using ceramics as its point of departure, and it definitely applies to the traditional kitchen. Not only that, structures and patterns along with familiar kitchen items such as cloths and dishcloths are contained in the visual expression of this series.
Even more good news! Normann Copenhagen is also reissuing Krenit bowls designed by Herbert Krenchel, originally designed in 1953.
The bowl is relaunched in two different sizes, the larger bowl named “baddekarret” (the bath tub) has never been in production previously. The colours released are white, blue, and green. I hope they release the “classic” colours eventually!

Herbert Krenchel had this to say:
“In 1953 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. As a material researcher I really concentrated on getting the different materials to match and look good together as well as making them equally compatible to use together. Enamel is a fantastic material, and even today my heart yearns for an enamel bowl. It is fantastic that the Krenit bowl is coming into production once more”.
