Muji's fourth Manhattan location opened this morning at 52 Cooper Square to the delight of the hyper-organized. The two-level space expands on what you know and love the Japanese brand for—beautiful paper goods, neutral-hued socks—with enough product categories to classify the shop as a veritable department store. An amazing-smelling, delicate music-playing, politely-staffed department store. Welcome to the future.
Apparel for men and women dominates the right half of the ground level, with $29.95 dress shirts sure to delight the office workers of Astor Place. The rest of the floor is divided between items for the bathroom, kitchen, office, and travel. The lower level houses furniture, which should be a first stop for the neighborhood's students transitioning between dorm and first East Village apartment. Click through our gallery for a tour of the impressive offerings.
