With a concept that brings to mind the classic children’s tale of The Three Little Pigs, Japanese brand MUJI has designed a collection of huts, each inspired by a single material: cork, aluminum or wood. Designed in collaboration with Naoto Fukasawa, Jasper Morrison and Konstantin Grcic, the MUJI Huts integrate micro-home minimalism with traditional Japanese aesthetics. Employing a minute footprint, each structure can be easily transported and installed in a wide array of landscapes. Although each edifice has in common similar spartan aesthetics, the interiors of all three are unique while still staying aligned with the clean lines of the exteriors.
