Sori Yanagi (1915–2011) is one of the most famous product designers in Japan. He 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.

Yanagi is both a representative of the wholly Japanese modern designer and a full-blown modernist who merged simplicity and practicality with elements of traditional Japanese crafts. Sori Yanagi’s works reconcile the two worlds of craft and industry by adapting the benefits of the handmade with the advantages of industrial production. His designs reflect an exemplary understanding of industrial production without losing the lightness and delicacy that is a characteristic of Japanese traditional design.
