DESCRIPTION

Sori Yanagi's Elephant Stool blends Japanese tradition and western design principles to stunning effect. For this multi-talented designer practicality is key. The piece can unify a decor or be distinctive, it is lightweight, stackable, built from hard-wearing plastic polymer and suitable for use indoor or out. But alongside functionality Yanagi never neglects aesthetics. His trademark sensuality is found in the absence of any straight lines; the stool maintains a constant, subtly noticeable curvature. With three colours intended to enrich each other, the version of this hallmark in post-war Japanese design could offer simplicity and grace to any bathroom or sitting room.

THE STORY BEHIND THE SORI YANAGI ELEPHANT STOOL

Up until his death in 2001, the 96 year old Sori Yanagi continued to work in the same Tokyo studio that he had for most of his career. Displaying the skills of Japanese craftsmanship and the industrial techniques he absorbed from Western modernists, the Elephant Stool clearly indicates Yanagi's debt to his father's Japanese craft movement. Designs such as this formed our understanding of modern Japanese industrial design. Yanagi's sensitivity to objects and surroundings can be seen in the stool, as can his commitment to initally working by hand. He believed that the smallest objects often need the greatest design work.

ABOUT THE DESIGNER

ABOUT THE DESIGNER

SORI YANAGI

1915 - 2011 (Japan)

Sori Yanagi is one of the most famous Japanese designers. He entered Tokyo Art School in 1934 and was inspired by the works of Le Corbusier. One of his most famous designs is the butterfly stool, although he has made everything from pedestrian overpasses to Olympic cauldrons. Most of his designs are very simple and reflects his thinking that true beauty is not made, it is born naturally. When creating a new design he made it over and over again by hand to ensure complete perfection. Sori Yanagi died at the age of 96 in 2011.
