TRENDS: muji
Posted by Sal Taylor Kydd on 7/07/2007

SAL: It seems I can’t pick up a magazine recently without reading about Japanese retailer MUJI opening up their flagship store in Manhattan. They have taken over 5000 square feet in the New York Times Building with a store tripped out by Japanese interior designer Takashi Sugimoto. The word MUJI is according to their site, derived from the Japanese phrase “mujirushi ryohin” meaning “no-brand, quality goods” and the store is known for its no-nonsense packaging, environmentalist attitude and minimalist aesthetic. Now I’m as excited about this as the next person, but for now I’m happy to check out the website and ogle the gorgeousness - see the elegant and simple end table above - from afar. Enjoy.
