The great Naoto Fukasawa has designed a series of kitchen appliances for Muji, that are now available in the US, and will be in the UK in the fall. The entire collection is super minimal and functional, but I’m in love with the toaster. Definitely going to replace my current toaster.

Muji has had a full line of kitchen appliances available for a while in Japan, and it seems like they’re going to start bringing more of the products to the US and Europe. Good news for us.

Ikko Tanaka Nihon Buyo Poster

Ikko Tanaka (1930–2002) was an influential Japanese graphic designer who combined Japanese tradition with the International Typographic Style to form a style of his own. He’s most known for this 1981 poster for a Nihon Buyo dance performance, in which he created an abstract geisha using basic geometric forms placed on a simple grid.
