Muji Award 2018 gold prize winner: the Storage Book, created by Ip Chi Chuen (HONG KONG)
According to the designer, “Sorting things” is a part of our lives, but you may often have trouble finding a place to store things after sorting them. As a solution to this problem, I made a storage case shaped like a book to make it easier to decide where to place. This MUJI PP case is designed to have the same shape and size as a normal book and the spine on which an identification sticker can be attached. It is an idea where a book on a bookshelf has an ability to store things.”
By Ip Chi Chuen, Hong Kong
I love it because I have been storing things in books since I was a kid. Although I find it more interesting the Door-in-Door project (Bronze award), from Chinese duo Lu Jiajheng & Cheng Yatin. But who am I to judge? 😉

I was on 45th
I was half out of a dive
Yeah I knew that you saw me
You laughed when I looked back
I thought I’d given up
Now I didn’t feel so bad
And then a shock went through me
And then I walked right back
I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.
Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something.
So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.
Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it.
Make your mistakes, next year and forever.
Half a decade ago Neil Gaiman wrote this New Year’s wish. Still valid.
