Cabin Love at First Sight…
Muji huts, as they’re called, are little Japenese gems, known for prefab sustainability and their minimal design. These three little huts were recently launched by the Japanese brand Muji, and are composed of three different materials namely wood, aluminium, and cork. Simple as they may seem, all three have phenomenal layouts and are quite the lookers! The only question is: Which one would you choose?!?
Following the release of their “Vertical House”, a prefabricated home designed for the tight, urban spaces of Japan, Japanese design brand Muji has showcased another set of ready-made habitats, this time a series of three minimalist “huts” at varying scales. Each hut, designed by a different designer, is intended as a retreat from urban activity and can be set-up in rural terrains. The huts each explore a different material: an aluminum hut by Konstantin Grcic, a cork hut by Jasper Morrison, and a wooden hut by Naoto Fukasawa. Jasper Morrison’s hut is a small house, removing the complications of construction. Despite its simplicity, the cork-paneled hut features a fireplace, stove, kitchen and bathroom. Konstantin Grcic’s hut is a narrow, two-storey cabin clad in corrugated aluminum, with wood and paper sliding panels at the top and bottom. “My Muji hut represents an enclosed space which is small enough to stay within the norm of constructions which need no building permission in Japan,” Grcic said. “
