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.

Shimogamosaryo  sells a powdered soy sauce called Kona-shoyu which produces a similar taste as 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. Enter Nendo, that drew inspiration from the containers Japanese ladles used in tea ceremonies.

The final product comes with two small bowls connected to each other—one with a lid for storage and one that works 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.
