There's something hugely impactful about Scandinavian and Japanese design -- both of which are now present in a single project: the Muji Sweden collection. Bringing the two design superpowers together in a stunning line of housewares, this collection explores utility, simplicity and overall stunning aesthetic. It is part of the larger Found Muji series, created to highlight "the cultural and historical uniqueness of each chosen regionm," writes Design Taxi.

Made up of 40 items, the Muji Sweden collection focuses on the country’s iron, linen and wooden industries as well as its cuisine and agriculture. It includes such items as Swedish melamine tableware, a special potato cutting board and a wall-mounted holder for coffee filters, which is very appropriate considering the culture's affinity towards the caffeinated beverage.
