Mid-Century Salad Serving

Herbert Krenchel designed these sleek matte black serving utensils way back in 1953. Now reissued by Normann Copenhagen, the Krenit Melamin Salad set looks as up-to-date as ever. Slim and elegant, the streamlined pair of serving utensils is made of lightweight melamine and surprisingly reasonably priced. They feel wonderful in the hand — solid, well balanced, light but still with enough heft to feel useful, their beautiful matte surface very easy to grip — they mix and toss mixed greens with ease. Even the box they come in is elegant and minimal.
