Of Salt and Sofas

Yesterday we told you about the products that earned acclaim from Muji in the company’s international design competition, among them “Kakujio,” salt formed into pre-measured cubes. Designed by De Meyboom Lab of the Netherlands, the product was among judge Jasper Morrison‘s favorites. The designer praised the salt cubes as a “great idea,” and we’re wondering if he recognized their similarity to one of his own creations: the Oblong sofa he designed in 2004 for Cappellini, composed of–you guessed it–modular white cubes.
