Japanese Laundry: Small-Space Solutions (Many via Amazon) from a Spotless Country

When my son dropped a glass bottle on a subway platform in Osaka last summer, a man appeared out of nowhere to sweep away the shards—and we learned firsthand how Japan earned its squeaky-clean status. The same fastidiousness extends to people’s homes—the slippers-only policy indoors is the law everywhere (we were even reprimanded for entering the foyer of a gym in our street shoes). So I wasn’t surprised to learn that doing laundry is a favorite chore that often gets tackled daily (“we don’t lik...

Design Travel: Artful Hotels in Tokyo and Kyoto

Sophia Coppola’s Lost in Translation kept taking on new meaning as I tried to plan a recent family trip to Japan. What “moon” were we arriving and departing, hotel booking sites wanted to know. Would a small room of futons work for the four of us? Or would we get more rest in sleep pods that looked like MRI chambers? As things go curiouser and curiouser, I asked architect Kano Hirano of No. 555 to point me in the right directions in Tokyo and Kyoto. Having written about several No. 555 projects,...

10 Easy Pieces: Compact Vertical Toaster Ovens from Japan

I’ve never liked the look of a typical toaster oven, and like the microwave, their size and function (with an opening door) means they’re difficult to hide. Japanese design solves this problem (of course!) with compact, simple-looking toaster oven boxes. The design is vertical, as opposed to the usual horizontal shape, taking up even less counter space. So good they’re worth the shipping—and the configuring of JP to US converters (most of these are made with a AC 100V power supply). Here are our...

MUJI X Sensible 4’s Self-Driving Bus premiered in Finland. We got a chance to sit in it!

It’s only natural that the world’s first fully autonomous self-driving bus would come out of Finland. Finland, believe it or not, is often considered to be the ‘Silicon Country’ that gave the world Nokia and pretty much set the very blueprint for mobile communications. Nokia was founded in Finland, and for over two grand decades before Apple launched the iPhone, Nokia was the standard to beat. In fact, there’s a high likelihood that your first phone was a Nokia (I know mine was). Post-2010 whe...

Report from Sweden: Introducing Arket (the Next Muji?)

Among the lagom ideas I’m taking back with me: candles on every surface to combat the January dark, remembering what it’s like to be quiet (no incessant background music in restaurants; calm...

Yes. Muji is designing self-driving buses now!

The self-driving landscape seems perfect for a company like Muji, known for its minimalistic appeal and function-first agenda. Muji’s products look minimalist and beautiful without looking bland, and perform wonderfully for years… and the Gacha, a shuttle bus co-designed with Finnish autonomous driving company Sensible 4, follows that direction too, not just being innately Muji-esque, but also echoing the aesthetic direction that most self-driving cars are taking, of putting information at the f...

Muji's Shared Apartment Concept: Cantilevered Wooden Caves for Bedrooms

For Beijing Design Week, Muji presented an apartment prototype at the House Vision exhibition. Designed by Japanese architect Go Hasegawa, the concept is hypothetically intended to house four Muji employees at their Shanghai office; in other words, it's not a family dwelling, but something that four individuals with privacy needs are intended to share.That's factor one. Factor two is that many of Shanghai's residential buildings, in which this concept would theoretically be constructed, have a p...
