From Japan by way of Louisiana?
I was being a Smart Alec with the IKEA comment, but I totally pick up what your puttin' down. I've read good things about the Muji stationary. I wonder who makes the fountain for them. Pilot, maybe?That Muji pen is a solid performer in the sub 25.00 space all day long.
A 30 sec look at the Muji website had me thinking a mix of a Japanese Ikea and a store call Uniqlo which is like a Japanese Gap.
I will spend some time on the Muji website.
I find that minimalist aesthetic attractive in certain fashion/household applications.
The clash comes with the fact that Ikea/Muji/Gap/Uniqlo all represent outstanding efforts at the intersection of quality and value where I am moving toward a buy top quality (on sale or even used sometimes) and cry once mindset.
