It’s 100 years since the Bauhaus art and design school first opened in Weimar, Germany, and the new Muji flagship store in Tokyo’s Ginza district is as good a venue as any to hold an anniversary exhibition celebrating the values of simple, affordable modernist design.

Though sadly not a major retrospective, the exhibition comprises a modest number of archive photographs by artist and designer Marianne Brandt (1893-1983), three of her iconic ashtray designs and other examples of household items by Wilhelm Wagenfeld (1900-90), Marcel Breuer (1902-81), Wolfgang Tumpel (1903-78) and Theodor Bogler (1897-1968).

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
