Minimalist Multifunctional Home Decor

The Muji Compact Life Collection Was at Milan Fashion Week

— September 9, 2021 — Art & Design
The Muji Compact Life collection has been shown off by the Japan-based retailer as a range of multifunctional home decor solutions that are all focused on helping consumers to declutter their living space. The collection was shown off at Milan Design Week and includes 12 products that each highlight a minimalistic design as well as a multifunctional aesthetic. The products include such options as a multipurpose coat rack for decluttering entryways, a step stool with built-in storage, a mirrored medicine cabinet that doubles as a whiteboard and more.

The Muji Compact Life collection was designed in collaboration with several industrial design students who were inspired by the continued shift amongst many consumers away from cluttered spaces towards functionally minimal living spaces.
