About the Designer

Sori Y.

Sori Y.

Respected Japanese designer Sori Yanagi, best known for his 1956 butterfly stool, was born in Tokyo. He studied architecture at Tokyo’s Academy of Fine Art, later working for designer Charlotte Perriand. In 1952 he set up his own design studio from which he designed various products ranging from furniture and subway stations to the torch for the 1972 Sapporo Winter Olympics. He believed in creating beautiful but simple functional objects, stating in an interview, “I try to create things that we human beings feel are useful in our daily lives. During the process, beauty is born naturally.”

A supporter of Japanese traditional art, Yanagi served as the head of the Japan Folk Crafts Museum which was founded by his father. He was awarded the Purple Ribbon Medal for contribution to education and culture in Japan, and the Good Design Award for his classic water kettle.
