Japanese retailer MUJI used an inspired and creative way to celebrate 10 years of existence in the United States. They teamed up with design studio Ladies & Gentlemen and created an installation that showcased their products in a display they called the Materials Garden.
The result was a minimalist masterpiece that highlighted the brand’s style and put a focus on different materials across the spectrum of MUJI products. The focus of the display was MUJI’s pared-back homeware range, with seven vignettes making up the garden that were each dedicated to a different material. These included ceramic, glass, plastic, linen, wood, aluminium and water.
The Materials Garden, which ran until the end of May 2018, was put together inside MUJI’s Soho store to coincide with this year’s NYCxDesign 2018. Take a look at the end result:
