• MUJI: Product Fitness 80
  • Posted 35 months ago by Jack Lowe · Art & Design · 3620 Views
  • Minimalist Japanese retailers MUJI will soon be opening an exhibition at the London Design Museum which rethinks design and the way it affects energy use. Entitled Product Fitness 80, the show will poses the questions "What would happen if we used 20% less materials and energy in the actual process of making products?" and suggests how users can help, re-using and recycling products to reduce their energy consumption.

    The exhibition opens 8 March and will run through 18 March, 2012.

    If you still have a MUJI receipt lying around, take it to the exhibition and you can get in for free.
