About Sori Yanagi

Sori Yanagi (1915-2011) played an active role as an industrial design pioneer in Japan. The eldest son of Soetsu Yanagi, he introduced utensils and tableware to the world, which were actually used around Japan, with the idea that beauty extended to items used in everyday life, and was not just limited to arts & crafts. These kitchen utensils born from the aesthetic sense of Sori Yanagi feature simplicity and beautiful curves that fit perfectly in the hand. In the practical beauty of the Sori Yanagi series, the DNA of many craftsmen who seek genuine ease of use that transcends generations can be found.
