Mixing bowl

Rosti Mepal

Margrethe bowl (1950), Jacob Jensen

Jacob Jensen was a young industrial designer when he worked at Bernadotte & Bjørn, a Copenhagen design studio. In 1955 he got assigned a project from Rosti to design a plastic kitchen bowl. The rest is history. Jensen created a bowl that is widely considered the best and most beautiful mixing bowl available. An instant design classic.

Bernadotte, who was the brother of Queen Ingrid of Denmark, named the bowl after his niece, who would later become Queen Margrethe II of Denmark. Manufactured by Rosti Mepal, the Margrethe bowl is still in production today.
