Sori Yanagi Skimmer

Regular price $48 Unit price  per 

Description:
This stainless steel skimmer is part of the Sori Yanagi Cooking Utensils line. This series of ergonomic tools won the Good Design Award in 1998. The curve of the handle provides a strong grip while the punched holes make this skimmer perfect for pulling out pasta, boiled vegetables, or unwanted residue. Display this sleek, functional form on your wall by hanging the turner from the hole in its handle when not in use.

History: 
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.
