Have you seen the results of the third MUJI competition?

I think my favourite is the “cameila washing-up liquid”  by Huang Yi Tang. This clever taiwanese has remembered what was used in past for washing the dishes – a powder-like residue from making camelia oil, which has antimicrobial and oil absorbing capabilites.

Now, this age old taiwanese invention has been translated into new context, thanks to MUJI, the world famous brand with talents like Naoto Fukasawa and Jasper Morrison, this time in the role of judges at the MUJI award 03 competition.
