First Found MUJI in Thailand
Found MUJI started its journey around the world with a keen eye for good home products, exploring the underlying values of the makers, retaining the essence of their creations, and re-tailoring them into MUJI merchandises that fit the modern way of life.
To mark the launch of the country's first Found MUJI concept at ZEN, MUJI welcomes renowned product designer Naoto Fukasawa for a talk event at nearby Central Embassy on 15 September. As one of the advisory board members of MUJI and an observer of the activity since 2003, the designer have accompanied the Found MUJI journeys.
Expansion of Home Furnishing Zone
Larger sales floor allows displaying a variety of home furnishing articles. Green plants will be introduced for the first time. Customers may actually see, feel and compare beds and storage furniture. Interior Advisors will be available for complimentary individual consultation for a space-efficient home and layout planning services using a simulator.
