Sori Yanagi

Modern design fit for an Olympian

Sori Yanagi is a name that is synonymous with Japanese modern design. Best known for the Butterfly Stool (1956) and for designing the official torches of the 1964 Tokyo Olympics and the 1972 Sapporo Olympics, his contributions to post-war industrial design still resonate to this day. Drawing on his family's history in the mingei folk craft movement and his background in art and architecture, his designs combine ideas in traditional craft with modern functions and production. Yanagi's award winning kitchenware exemplify his ability to apply Japanese forms and sensibilities to the needs and materials of the industrial age, creating tools that look and feel light and organic, but are highly efficient and durable. Yanagi passed away in 2011.
