VESKI Funds AGIdeas Program 2007

6 February

veski recently supported the attendance of Mr Masaaki Kani, Senior Managing Director of Ryohin Keikaku Co Ltd. who owns the MUJI brand, (Japan) at this year’s AGIdeas forum.

Mr Kanai presented at a business breakfast at Hamer Hall to over 250 business leaders and at the main forum to over 3000 representatives of the Victorian Design Community. This was an unique opportunity to hear first hand how MUJI found a point of difference and how MUJI went on to open 285 stores in Japan as well as stores in Europe, the United States and Asia.

Mr Kanai has been responsible for a new strategy for the merchandise development, inducing talented product designers from overseas to collaborate with the MUJI Team. AGIdeas International Design Week is now one of the largest and most well respected design events in the world.

In 2007, 3,300 designers - students, lecturers and professionals from all states of Australia, from New Zealand, Taiwan, Korea, Thailand, Abu Dhabi, the UK, Mexico and the USA descended upon Melbourne’s premier art centre for the AGIdeas International Design Week 2007.
