Herbert Krenchel is a Danish designer who studied at the Technical University of Denmark, his research feeding into his design practice in the 1950s. His work revolved around materials and fibre reinforcement.
He stated about design, "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 the 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."
