Sori Yanagi Butterfly Stool:

Butterfly Stool (1954) by Japanese designer Sori Yanagi is a unique piece of furniture with its gently curved silhouette of the dual seat shells resembling a butterfly’s wing. The design combines Eastern forms with the wood molding technique developed by Charles and Ray Eames with the help of Alvar Aalto. The delicate symmetry of the stool is recognized and displayed in the Museum of Modern Art and Metropolitan Museum of Art.

About the Designer
Sori Yanagi, born in 1915 in Tokyo, attended art school in the city and worked 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. In 1977, Sori Yanagi was named director of the Japanese Folk Art Museum in Tokyo. He died in Tokyo in 2011.
