This elegant butterfly stool is designed by Japanese designer Sori Yanagi who got the award in Finland design competition in 1957, the Butterfly Stool unmistakably modern while displaying an unmistakable Japanese sensibility. The stool is made from two curving and inverted L-shaped beechwood sections, each forming one leg and half of the seat. A metal rod midway between the legs serves as a stretcher and holds the stool together. Simply, a soaring design of molded plywood and steel.
“Beauty is born, not created.”
Sori Yanagi is one of the most famous product designers in Japan. Born in 1915 in Tokyo, Sori Yanagi attended art school and worked from 1940 to 1942 in the office of the designer Charlotte Perriand. In 1952, Sori Yanagi founded the Yanagi Industrial Design Institute, which created a prolific number of articles of daily use and furnishings. His 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.
Sori Yanagi’s designs reflect an exemplary understanding of industrial production without losing the lightness and delicacy that is a characteristic of Japanese traditional design. His poetic approach to design is reflected in the butterfly stool, whose clever design is made up of two identical pieces of moulded plywood, held together with a simple brass fitting. The result is a shape reminiscent of the gates of Shinto shrines and is thus Asian in expression; on the other hand, it resembles the wings of a butterfly, from which it derives its name.
