The store will be Muji's 11th outlet in Singapore and will house the third Cafe & Meal Muji eatery, which will seat 70 diners.
According to a press release, the flagship store will reveal original concepts adapted from Muji Japan and serve as a community ground for people "to come together, explore design and arts ideas, and experience various learning anchors".
More than just a retail concept, the new store will have an open space which will be used for educational activities on culture, art and design. These will include exhibitions, galleries, creative workshops and talks.
