Naoto Fukasawa in Singapore for a Talk about “Found Muji” concept

Its a rare occasion for Japan renowned designer – Naoto Fukasawa to visit our Sunny island. And if not for the recent launched of Muji first flagship store @ Plaza Singapura in South-East Asia, I would not have this great opportunity to see and hear his talk in person. It’s a 2 hours talk + Q&A session. A Tote bag + gift card were given out to all audience as well.

According to Fukasawa san, Found Muji concept is about getting design to work at its core. He once said “The best designs are those that dissolve into behaviour.”, something that works in our daily life without us realising it.

A permanent exhibit display is currently available @ Muji Plaza Singapura, can head down to see the items that are found to contain some Muji elements around the World.
