Ryohin Keikaku to Hold “My Found MUJI East Asia” Exhibition

23.July.2017 | SPOT

Ryohin Keikaku Co.,Ltd., also known as Muji, are holding an exhibition titled “My Found MUJI East Asia” at Found Muji from August 25th to November 9th.

 

Muji sells a wide range of household goods. But they do not simply create things. They live by “searching and finding”. They travel around Japan and the globe looking for long-lasting everyday goods to improve on them and resell them at a great price to fit into the changing lifestyles, cultures and customs of other countries around the world. They dubbed this activity “Found MUJI” in 2003 and have called it that ever since.

 

Staff working at Ryohin Keikaku in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Korea were asked to look for their “Found MUJI”.

Staff went to each location to meet the makers and contributed their opinions. Everybody gathered their items together which was put through the Ryohin Keikaku filter to be chosen. They found out where each item originated from and confirmed the craftsmanship by asking where each of the items were used and how they were made.

 

The most representative items of those 4 countries were carefully selected for this exhibition where you can learn their background’s and also find out the staffs’ opinions. Found MUJI isn’t about rare items made in a far away country, it’s about the items we’re surrounded by every day.
