'100 Whites' by Kenya Hara
A symbol of simplicity and subtlety in Japanese aesthetics, the color white is also central to the practice of Muji’s art director and author Kenya Hara. In 100 Whites, Hara imagines white both as a visual phenomenon and a state of mind. From snow to rice, he presents 100 examples of white to illustrate its importance to design as both a color and philosophy. 100 Whites is the extension of Hara's previous book White.
