    MUJI: It's about designing your own life – not someone else's. It's a belief that simple is better than complicated. And it's the knowledge that real simplicity is always the result of openness and honesty. MUJI products spring from a commitment to moderation in all things except quality – and from the confident awareness that modesty and discretion are, together, the better part of style.

    Because there is complexity in purity.

    Elegance in plainness.

    Intricacy in streamlining.

    Richness in reduction.

    Depth in minimalism.

    Surprise in uniformity.

    Innovation in re-use.

    Cool in the avoidance of cool.

    And there is true
    sophistication in simplicity.

    Opening in NYC fall 2007.



    And this thread goes out to... devilot. ;)

    MUJI is probably, IMO, one of the best stores in Japan. Its almost like generic but better. No name brands. I can't wait until they open a store near me.

    If she has to fly to NYC she may as well fly to London.
    She'd get more beers out of it too!

    I think they might just manage an online store. ;)

    The problem before was that the only MUJI in the states was at MoMA, and it was range limited.

    And because the U.S. dollar is only marginally stronger than the Zimbabwean one, ordering from an international MUJI store would be... :eek: :eek: :eek:

    I loved MUJI before.

    Now, I think it's totally overrated. It's too expensive for the quality you get back. Yes, some of the stuff is made from recycled cardboard (and recycling is good), but it's expensive for cardboard furniture!! I think the same way about American Apparel and quality, but the workers get paid fairly and I get something that looks OK but uses much thinner material. I guess there's a price to pay for having fair trade (despite them not being officially fair trade because they were never assessed and certified as such).

    However, some of Muji's stuff is worth the price.
