After wowing the design community back in 2015 with prototypes of their minimalist micro-home, the Muji Hut is now on sale in Japan. With a compact 9 square-metre interior, double-pane glass front and covered porch, the Hut is just about big enough for 3-4 people to relax in and sleeps a single. Using traditional materials to blend into its surroundings, the Hut is built from wood entirely sourced in Japan. The outer walls are constructed of burnt cedar for its enhanced antiseptic properties and treated with an oil stain, while the interior has a minimalist finish to let the owner stamp their own style. The Muji Hut is on sale now for ¥3,000,000 (£20,150) including materials and construction, though they are currently only available inside Japan, hopefully an international service is soon to follow: www.muji.com/jp/mujihut
