Caught between tradition and modernity Tokyo goes through a metamorphosis in the 1970s, influenced by an economic boom and a new view of and focus on the west. At the same time a completely new, modern approach to industrial design emerges – perfectly embodied in our Tokyo Soda Siphon.

TOKYO IN THE 1970s

In the 1970s Japan finds itself on a crossroads as the country relentlessly pushes for the reindustrialisation of its economy and everything begins to mix: Technology and artisanal tradition, western culture and national heritage, modernity and tradition. Tokyo’s population soon surpasses 11m and Asia’s tallest skyscraper is built. As the west slows down Japan launches its first satellite into space, exports cars to the entire world and sends its first couturiers to the Paris fashion show.

The west begins to rediscover Japanese culture piece by piece: the first episodes of Japanese manga cartoons are broadcast on TV and Japanese popular culture begins to gain traction.

AN AWARD WINNING ORIGINAL

Founded in 1912, the Nippon Tansan Gas Company of Tokyo develops a modern Soda Siphon - the first to bear the label “Made in Japan”. The chief engineer of NTG designed and created the Tokyo Soda Siphon in 1975 inspired by both traditional and modern design cues. As a small manufacturer, NTG has been using and maintaining the same machines since the 1970s.

The Tokyo Soda Siphon has been part of an exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art, New York and was awarded with the “Design of the Year” award by the Wall Street Journal in 2010.
