RIP, Sori Yanagi, pioneer of Japanese industrial design. As the LA Times reports, he died on Sunday in Tokyo, aged 96. Probably best known for his incredible butterfly stool, from 1954, Yanagi also made exquisitely understated housewares, including porcelain and silver. His motto: “Japanese design. Universal use.” Shown here is a magazine spread showing off some of his astonishingly beautiful pieces, c/o soriyanagi.com.
