Product fitness 80 Exhibition
What would happen if we used 20% less materials and energy to make products?
After the March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami, and the subsequent nuclear disaster in Japan, those impacts are forcing people to reconsider lifestyles dependent on the excess consumption of resources. Acting in unison with people thinking about their new styles of life, from August 24 to August 30, MUJI will present Product fitness 80, an exhibition at SOMArts in San Francisco that calls for a reconsideration of the way in which MUJI addresses product design and product “fitness”.
The figure 80 reflects on what would happen if we were to make all products using just 80% of the materials and energy that we have been using to date.
MUJI constantly exercises self-restraint in the design and manufacture of its products, asking itself “is this necessary?” or “is this going too far?”
Product fitness 80 reflects MUJI’s belief that a little restraint will change our life and the world.

Born in Tokyo, raised in Tanzania and England, Shing02 came up in the independent SF Bay Area scene in the early ’90s. Over the course of his independent career starting in 1995, he has made the transition from sample-based music to live performances with a full band incorporating traditional instruments, while remaining true to his hip hop roots. As the inventor of the Vestax Faderboard, he toured in the free-jazz trio, Kosmic Rennaisance. In 2012, he released English album “ASDR” with Brooklyn-based band Chimp Beams, and mixCD “FTTB3″ by DJ Icewater. (Photo: Ken Goto)
