Could This Redesigned Soy Sauce Container Take Over Kikkoman’s Iconic Bottle?

Japanese design agency Nendo has created a soy sauce container that might just be the symbol of powdered condiments in the future

Japanese restaurant Shimogamosaryo was trying to find ways to better dispense their powdered soy sauce. So they sought the help of design agency Nendo and the result is something that might actually give Kikkoman’s soy sauce bottle a run for its money.

The Kona-shoyu is a powdered soy sauce that the Shimogamosaryo sells. It is described to be similar to liquid soy sauce except it doesn’t dampen the food, thus, helping maintain the crispiness of the dish. Since it’s in powder form, it was a challenge to find a container that will give the user complete control of the quantity dispersed from the container. But Nendo saw inspiration from the Japanese ladles used in tea ceremonies and worked a design from there.


Now, the final product comes with two small bowls connected to each other, one with a lid for storage and one work as a funnel. Simply pour the kona-shoyu into the storage, close the lid, and then tilt the handle towards you to dispense the powder. Condiment containers have never been this easy and precise to use.
