As a huge fan of Muji I've been keen to find out about some of their designers. Industrial Facility have been responsible for designing many of Muji's signature pieces and have also designed some of their quirkier products. For example the 'Puzzle Cookie Cutter' is a brilliantly fun idea and the 'City in a Bag' is simple and witty.
I remember as a child my godmother bringing back to New Zealand a huge bag of goodies for me after one of her European trips. Included in the parcel were a set of wooden buildings very similar to these Muji ones. The only difference is that Industrial Facility have cleverly taken the iconic buildings of Tokyo, Paris, London and New York, and minaturised them in wood.
