Sori Yanagi was born in 1915 in Tokyo, Japan, as the son of Soetsu Yanagi, who founded the "mingei" movement which celebrated Japanese folk crafts and the beauty of everyday objects. Soetsu helped establish the Nihon Mingeikan, the Folk Crafts Museum of Japan. Sori entered Tokyo Art School in 1934, where he studied both art and architecture. He was influenced by Le Corbusier as well as by Charlotte Perriand when she worked in Japan in the early 1940s. So, his interests moved from painting to buildings to design and objects.

After World War II, he designed many products: furniture, three-wheeled vehicles, Olympic cauldrons, pedestrian overpasses, etc. The water kettle was just one of Sori Yanagi’s most famous designs, which included the Butterfly chair from 1954, as well as his porcelain and silverware series. His designs can be found today in permanent exhibitions around the world- from MoMA in New York to the Louvre in Paris.

Nihon Yoshokki Co Ltd was founded in 1955 in Tsubame City, Niigata Prefecture, Japan, the center of cutlery and steel manufacturing. They are the manufacturer of the most of Sori Yanagi kitchenware and tableware.
