From a design perspective, each of the store’s three levels uses a different natural material to create three unique, differentiated shopping environment: Wood, iron (metal) and glass (earth).
“We seek out food ingredients that are tasty as natural food, and produce menus that make use of the original tastes of those ingredients with simple cooking methods,” said a Muji spokesperson of the new eatery offer.
