Sake Gumi


Remember the lunch scene in The Breakfast Club? Claire (Molly Ringwald) pulls a can of Coke, a wooden tray, a bento box full of sushi, a pair of chopsticks, and a personal soy sauce dispenser from her lunch bag, to the confused disgust of John (Judd Nelson). We were re-watching this '85 John Hughes classic recently and couldn't get over how much that soy sauce dispenser reminds us of the Table Soy Sauce Dispenser by Tokyo-based Kimura Glass Co.

We don't know about Claire's, but the Kimura Table Soy Sauce Dispenser was made in collaboration with Japanese designer Chikako Okeda.

She wanted to make a perfectly-proportioned dispenser for the tabletop and the meal at hand.
Aside from shoyu, try serving warm jus or other thin sauces in this pretty lil' pourer.
