Sori Yanagi Birch Handle Flatware
This birchwood handle flatware series is a prime example of supreme craftsmanship. With special joinery that makes an invisible seam between the birch and the stainless steel, these utensils have a pleasant weight and smooth texture. Each piece is elegant and minimal, handcrafted in Niigata, Japan.
Sori Yanagi's kitchen product series began with an extensive line of cutlery in 1974, and has since expanded to include pots, pans, kettles, colanders, bowls, knives, utensils and cast iron grills. His design concept nurtures simplicity and the inclusion of small ideas that affect us in big ways.
Often listed amongst legendary masters of industrial design like Charles & Ray Eames and Arnie Jacobsen, Yanagi is considered to be one of Japan's most influential product designers and a leader of the industrial post-war design movement in Japan. Credited as the father of Japanese modern design, Yanagi's bent plywood stool, the "BUTTERFLY STOOL", which was designed in 1956, is currently part of the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art in NY.
All Sori Yanagi stainless steel pieces are made in Niigata, Japan.
