My Found MUJI East Asia

Found MUJI is not a collection of novelty items from faraway countries. These are everyday tools that make up the local landscape and are so familiar to local residents that they are taken for granted. This issue introduces traditional items from these four parts of East Asia with comments from our staff on why they were selected for Found MUJI.

 

Pampas grass broom Taiwan

The broom probably has a history of over 30 to 40 years and I have been using it since childhood. It is light weight and has a simple design. You can feel its warmth by just looking at its soft shape. The broom conveniently sweeps away tiny specks of dust and is an item essential for daily life. Even just by having it leaning against the wall it adds a peaceful feeling to its surroundings.

Bamboo steamer Hong Kong

The bamboo steamer is a kitchen item made from natural material and created with the wisdoms learned through daily life. Bamboo has a concentrated density which absorbs the moisture when steaming food, preventing droplets from accumulating on the inside walls. The steamer has an inner wall and an outer wall which allows the steam to circulate equally in between. We can enjoy warm dishes and the authentic tastes and textures of the ingredients using the steamer. It is a feature not found with stainless steel steamers.

Onggi Korea

Onggi is often referred to as a “breathing” container. It has good breathability and it keeps a stable temperature inside to prevent the food from getting rotten. It was first made to preserve jang (Korean sauces and pastes) and fermented foods. This everyday item introduces the ancient wisdoms of the Korean people.

Reed table brush Korea

In Korea, reed is a plant that has been used for various purposes since early times and the broom is a typical item which utilises its original material features. By taking advantage of its textural expression and the durability of the material, the broom was redesigned as a table brush to fit into modern lifestyles. This item was selected as it reflects the MUJI concept.

Lacquerware tray with stand Korea

The Namwon region has long been known as a wood production region. Wooden tableware is made from resources in this region by the careful work of the craftsmen. Made only from natural materials, the white ash stand is completed after it is coated with lacquer six times. In Korea, the bowl is used for festive purposes. However by introducing the bowl through Found MUJI, it could become useful for the daily purposes of many more people.

Bamboo Woven Basket China

We have always used this item at home. My grandfather said that he also used this kind of baskets when he was a child. Back in those days, they used it more often and it was used as a bag when grocery shopping or for storing fruits and vegetables. Reasonably priced and made from a material that is easy to weave, and it is also durable enough to be used for a long period of time.

Sichuan people love pickles, and it is served everywhere from street stalls to upscale restaurants. This pickle jar is a daily item which local people use and can easily access. Typical Sichuan families love pickles so much that they keep jars in all sorts of sizes.
