Ash Wood Bed, Cotton Bedding, and Torch Light
Muji, whose name means “no brand,” is a Japanese company that has become a global purveyor of low-cost, high-quality goods that respect the environment and express a low-key, functional point of view. Economy drives the Muji ethos. By seeking out simple methods of production and basic materials that are not excessively processed, the company creates objects that share a unified sensibility without professing to be stylish and of the moment. Looking at common needs such as lighting, sleep, storage, seating, and dining, Muji has created 7,500 objects suitable to urban living.
Muji’s Ash Wood bed has a curved headboard that supports the body comfortably while reading a book, watching TV, or working on a laptop. The bed can be dressed for summer with Muji’s line of seersucker cotton bedding, whose wavy surface results from warp tension during the weaving process. This structural decoration keeps the raised stripes away from the skin, cooling the body during warm weather, while the naturally crinkled surface needs no ironing. Muji’s portable Torch light uses an LED to conserve power. Users can set the light on a table or carry it like a torch or flashlight. The milky white shell conveys a soft, warm glow.Location: japan
