Sōri Yanagi (柳 宗理, Yanagi Sōri, 1915–2011) was an influential Japanese modern industrial designer during the high-growth post-war period of the Japanese economy. His work represents the quintessential Japanese modern designer and a full-blown modernist who merged simplicity and practicality with elements of traditional Japanese crafts.
From 1940 to 1942 in the office of the designer Charlotte Perriand. In 1952, he founded the Yanagi Industrial Design Institute, which created a prolific number of articles of daily use and furnishings. Sori Yanagi’s organic forms combine western industrial designs with Japan’s native artisanal traditions. This successful synthesis made Sori Yanagi one of the most significant Japanese designers of the post-war era. In addition to furniture, he also designed lighting, glass objects, cutlery, children’s toys, metro stations, cars and motorcycles.
