Description:  
All sold individually, this flat ware line is the most popular one we carry! Many people who use Sori Yanagi in their kitchen cannot go back to using other designs because of the user-friendly nature of his pieces - a simplicity that at first glance can go unnoticed, but can be felt in big ways by chefs and at-home cooks alike.

Variation: 

None

History:  
Often listed amongst legendary masters of industrial design like Charles and Ray Eames and Arnie Jacobsen,  Yanagi is considered to be one of Japan's most influential product designers and 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.

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 seeking out of small ideas that affect in big ways.
