MUJI's Beloved Minimalist Huts Are Set to Go on Sale This Year

By autumn 2017 in Japan.

By //Design

In November 2015, MUJI revealed a series of minimalist micro-homes during Tokyo Designers Week. The project was developed by the Japanese home-goods stalwart alongside designers Naoto Fukasawa, Jasper Morrison and Konstantin Grcic. Recently, the retailer announced that the tiny huts are slated to hit the market in Japan by autumn 2017.

In its initial preview, MUJI showcased a bevy of compact sheds that employ traditional Japanese aesthetics. This time around, images of a more pared-back abode surfaces, boasting a height of 10 square meters, a sizable living space that can comfortably fit up to four individuals, as well as tall sliding glass doors that allow plenty of light to seep inside. It’s entirely made up of cedar wood with burned hardwood as a protective shell to help brave the natural elements. Not to mention, it’s built on top of a raft foundation that is durable and protects from ground moisture.

“It’s not as dramatic as owning a house or a vacation home, but it’s not as basic as going on a trip,” MUJI told designboom. “Put it in the mountains, near the ocean, or in a garden, and it immediately blends in with the surroundings, inviting you to a whole new life. this was the vision behind our radically new MUJI hut concept.”

Take a look at the latest tiny hut above and find more information at MUJI’s official website. Prices start at approximately $27,000 USD.
