But where did the bottle get its original design?
It took three years for [designer Kenji] Ekuan and his team to arrive at the dispenser’s transparent teardrop shape. More than 100 prototypes were tested in the making of its innovative, dripless spout (based on a teapot’s, but inverted). The design proved to be an ideal ambassador. With its imperial red cap and industrial materials (glass and plastic), it helped timeless Japanese design values — elegance, simplicity and supreme functionality — infiltrate kitchens around the world.
The Kikkoman soy sauce dispenser was introduced in 1961 and has been in continuous production ever since.
