MUJI at Kennedy Airport

According to the New York Times, MUJI is about to open its first airport store at New York’s Kennedy International Airport.

Among the new terminal’s 19 retail outlets will be the first airport store in the United States operated by Muji, a Japanese clothing and housewares retailer whose only other outposts in this nation are in Manhattan. Muji’s store will include an unusual detail: a fireproofed steel column will be left exposed, enclosed in glass. Hiroyoshi Azami, president of Muji U.S.A. Ltd., said this is to preserve “the very natural feel of the structure.”

Thanks, Peter!
