Do you often feel overwhelmed by the constant consumerism and visual clutter around you? Have you been trying, in futile, to get organized, to declutter and purge out the things that no longer serve you?
Muji, the Japanese brand was a breath of fresh air when it first came to Singapore, thanks to its minimalist, classic and no-fuss aesthetics.
Translated into English, Muji's full name Mujirushi Ryōhin means "no name quality goods," which speaks of the brand's philosophy revolving around functionality, sustainability, and simplicity.
In a world of noise and clutter, the company’s primary aim, as stated by its art director Kenya Hara, is “to continue to improve the way people live.” Indeed, Muji is about embracing a lifestyle – a deliberate way of living that promises to cut out all the noise, and maintain a Zen quality in our lives.
The reason why consumers fell head over heels with their products? Muji researchers frequently visit households to fully understand the pain points of daily living and tackle the issues head-on. According to Fast Company, Muji injects "micro consideration" into their product design workflow into their products. And this is how their organising and storage products, stationery, bedding and more, were birthed. And precisely because Muji products do not follow trends, they can withstand the test of time.
That’s why we are cheered to know that Muji is currently available on Amazon.sg. What’s more, take advantage of Amazon’s Prime Day deals by signing up for a free 30-day Prime Membership and gain access to exclusive deals.
