The temporary Muji Hut exhibition included Jasper Morrison’s ‘Hut of Cork,’ Konstantin Grcic’s ‘Hut of Aluminum,’ and Naoto Fukasawa’s ‘Hut of Wood.’ Each cozy building has a minimal lightweight footprint so that it can be easily moved and installed in a variety of locations. MUJI describes the prefab project as an “escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.”

All three micro-homes blend traditional Japanese elements with contemporary styles. Fukasawa’s Hut of Wood more closely resembles a traditional log cabin and opens up to views and natural light through floor-to-ceiling glazed sliding doors. Topped with a pitched roof, the timber home’s most notable features include a large traditional Japanese bath, a minimal cot for a bed, and a wood-burning stove.

In contrast, Morrison’s Hut of Cork trades the bathtub for a minimal shower under the assumption that residents will use the neighborhood communal bathhouse or hot spring. Colorful tatami mats line the floor while sound-absorbing cork panels clad the exterior.

Konstantin Grcic’s Hut of Aluminum is the most minimalist of the bunch. Sliding shoji-like doors open up to an all-wood interior, with the bedroom located on the upper loft. According to Spoon & Tamago, prices will range from $25,000 to $40,000.
