"They're just strainers, but aesthetically, they're beautiful strainers," says Keiko Shinomoto of the Sori Yanagi-designed kitchen implements available at her home accessories store, Tortoise. The 91-year-old Yanagi pioneered a blend of Asian minimalism and Western industriousness; these strainers are no exception. They're made of industrial punching metal (as opposed to the conventional woven mesh) for durability and ease of cleaning.

Tortoise, 1208 Abbot Kinney Blvd., Venice, (310) 314-8448. The strainers range from $19 to $41.
