    "Rediscover Recreate" Found Muji Exhibition at the Open Muji corner

Uniqlo isn't the only Japanese export with a massive Southeast Asia flagship store here now with Muji opening one too in Plaza Singapura, its biggest outlet in Singapore.

Spanning across 1,896 sq m, Muji's first Southeast Asia flagship store is big enough to include new concepts adapted from their HQ. While it still can’t beat the OG stores in Japan in terms of size and product range, the Plaza Singapura outlet will act as a community-centric space for patrons from various walks of life to explore art and design ideas. As Muji puts it, it will be “a window to the world, while keeping the basic concept" of the brand.

To do this, they’ve engaged a notable Tokyo-based design company to work on the store’s facade. They’ve used layers and panels of wood for most elements in the store, including the ceiling, to create a comfortable, homely feel for patrons. There’s also a complex wall display made up of old books stacked together.

Much like the little corner on the top floor of Uniqlo’s flagship, Muji has introduced the Open Muji Concept, a space that's reserved for activities such as creative workshops, exhibitions, galleries and talks.

Design and space aside, Muji Plaza Singapura will be the only store where you can find products from series' like Found Muji, a line of products made using materials and techniques found across the world without compromising on the brand’s ethos of functionality and minimal form; Idee, an interior brand that Muji has collaborated with because of their shared philosophy of minimalism; Muji Labo, an apparel line that has a different take on basics; and many others.

The store will also house Singapore’s third Cafe&Meal Muji, so you can be sure you won't go hungry while shopping.
