Muji Is Selling Tiny Spaces For People Who Just Want Some Me-Time
Tiny Living is a movement taking over the globe. With property prices rising by the minute, designers and consumers are starting to be more creative with designing their living spaces. Smaller spaces are now taking center stage for their affordability and perhaps more and more people are embracing minimalism. And who else embodies minimalism better than Japanese brand Muji?
Earlier this year, Muji revealed Muji Hut. Muji Hut is a nine square meter prefabricated house, this means that the house is already built and just needs to be assembled on-site. A prefabricated house if pretty much like getting a furniture of piece from Ikea, you get the box with all the main components and bolts, and you assemble the whole thing at home. In this case, you assemble a hut and not a shelf.
According to Muji, the space can comfortably accommodate three to four people. Perfect to be placed in your garden or the mountains, it can give you a peaceful refuge wherever you maybe.
The Muji Hut has a porch area and a large window entrance in the form of a sliding door. For air circulation and for natural light to flow in, a smaller window is installed on the other wall.
The main finishes of the Muji Hut is Burnt Cedar for its exterior, and Japanese cypress plywood and Mortar finish flooring for the interior. This is to let consumers customize the space how they want.
At the moment, the Muji Hut will only be released in Japan for ¥3,000,000 Japanese Yen (roughly P1.4M in Philippine Peso). International release is still to be announced.
