The stainless steel kettle is the signature product designed by Sori Yanagi. This matte-finished stainless steel kettle is lightweight, durable, and the wide flat base is designed for rapid boiling. The offset ergonomic bakelite handle makes it easier to pour.

Japanese kettles don't whistle because traditionally, they used to sit on top of a freestanding stove in the kitchen in winter to keep the room warm and moist like a modern-day humidifier and always ready with hot water for making tea and cooking.

About:

Sori Yanagi entered Tokyo Art School in 1934, where he studied both art and architecture. He was impressed by Le Corbusier as well as by Charlotte Perriand when she worked in Japan in the early 1940s, and he got more interested in "design and objects" rather than paintings and buildings.

After World War II, Sori designed many kinds of products such as furniture, three-wheeled vehicle, Olympic cauldron, and pedestrian overpass. The water kettle was one of his most famous designs, which included the Butterfly chair in 1954 as well as his porcelain and silverware series.

Nihon Yoshokki Co Ltd was founded in 1955 in Tsubame City, Niigata Prefecture, Japan, which is the centre of cutlery and steel manufacturing. It manufactures most of the Sori Yanagi-designed kitchenware and tableware.
