In Japanese "Muji" means "no brand." Aptly named, we love the new-to-San Francisco Japanese retailer for their clean, no-frills designs and practical lifestyle goods.  

With over 2,000 products available in their 7,250 square foot, two-story SoMa retail space, it was difficult choosing only seven favorites. 

1. Muji Silicon Ice Ball Maker, $11.75 

2. Muji Penguin Bowling Set, $19.50

3. Muji Heat Reactive Cityscape Mug, $27.95

4. Muji Foldable Tube Boston Bag, $69.95

5. Muji Silicon Bottle Opener, $6.25

6. Muji Mobile Speaker, $37.50 

7. Muji 3D Puzzle Elephant, $12.50
