Sori Yanagi was a famous Japanese product designer who was influential in Japan’s post World War II high-growth period. He is a representative of Japanese modern design, merging simplicity and practicality with elements of traditional Japanese craftsmanship.

His kitchen product design series started from stainless cutlery in 1974 and expanded to kettles, pans and bowls. Many of his furniture design pieces are featured in MoMA.

His design concept is beauty in simplicity and thoughtful functionality details. As most of his cookware look very simple, you may not tell the differences or benefits by just looking. However, once you started using his wares, it’s hard to go back to using other brands. The balance in design, high quality craftsmanship and user-friendliness are the qualities that enable these items to endure for half a century. His popular cookware, such as Nambu Tekki cast iron pots & pans, kettles, kitchen knives and bowl/strainers are perfectly designed and made in Japan by skilled craftsmen. You can use Sori Yanagi cookware for many years to come.
