Mr. Ekuan won the soy sauce contract, from the Kikkoman Corporation, while still in his 20s. It took him three years and 100 prototypes to come up with a final design for his dispenser, which combined a gracefully curving form with an innovative, dripless spout. More than 300 million of the bottles have been sold.
I hold one of these in my hand several times a week at least and find it to be a brief moment of true joy.
Thanks for the post.
