The NY Times have a great little feature on the iconic Kikkoman Soy Sauce bottle design by Kenji Ekuan. I’ve ingested enough of this stuff that it deserves a blog post for sure, but creating a bottle seen on tables all around the world apparently was not enough for Mister Ekuan. He also designed the rather space-y Akita Shinkansen (aka Bullet Train), and the Yamaha R1 motorbike back in 1967. As such, he is one of Japan’s most famous designers.
