This curated pop-up shop and gallery shows how great design can come from all places

Japanese minimalist retailer Muji is bringing a selection of ‘found' objects from around the world into its New York City flagship store on 5th Avenue. The Best of Found Muji is available as a pop-up collection until the end of June and features traditional designs from around the world that suit the Muji aesthetic, as well as recreated, updated versions, keeping core design elements while adapting to modern styles.

The collection features items from China, Thailand, Ecuador, India, Italy, France and Sweden, as well as special Japanese textile products: woven pillowcases, throws and napkins. There are elegant, simple glasswares, traditional woven baskets and unembellished pots and pans. The selection is meant to “honor the unique cultures and customs of countries around the world.”
