Mujirushi Ryohin



Urban hipsters take note

As recently reported, the British Council have scarpered from their prestigeous «Hackesche Markt 1» address, and the façade of the building they vacated is currently undergoing a bit of a facelift. No wonder: the Japanese retail outfit Muji is moving in and it wouldn’t surprise me if they replace the bland-box sandstone cladding with something cleaner, lifestylier, more metrosexual. Like gray granite. Sorry, did I write «gray»? I meant «anthracite».

Expect Muji’s 380 m2 of minimal retail porn to open this spring.
