Kenji Ekuan’s Kikkoman Bottle Design

Kenji Ekuan’s 1957 design for Kikkoman’s soy sauce bottle is as globally familiar as as the Coca Cola bottle. But there is a fascinating story behind its design that embodies Kenji Ekuan’s philosophy that “everything has a soul” and “making objects means imbuing it with its own spirit.” along with the idea of “democratization” of goods and beauty accessible to everyone.

I have included a link to Simon Usborne’s enlightening article in The INDEPENDENT. (click here)

A fascinating read that speaks volumes about the pleasures in cooking and eating with a Zen sense of pure experience.
