Enjoy! ( ) Energy is the latest project from Muji Labs which aims to collect ideas for saving energy from designers around the world. Muji has created a website to feature the concept work created by invited designers who have volunteered their time for the project. Each was given the brief to develop an idea for saving energy in daily life by first completing the phrase “Enjoy! ( ) Energy”.
So far, 57 ideas are featured which span from practical to lighthearted. Muji will continue to publish more ideas on an ongoing basis. Scroll down to see five favorites we selected.
