After answering Australia’s calls for simple, no-nonsense furnishings, Japanese design store Muji are tackling the world of architecture.
So, what’s the deal? Basically, Muji have created three flat-pack homes that can be bought and assembled by a team of trained builders. The catch: you’ll have to move to Japan. That’s right, at this stage these stylish abodes will only be seen in Muji’s mother land.
In keeping with the brand’s iconic style, each room is effortless, chic and minimalistic. White walls give small spaces an airy atmosphere, while their signature light timbers and neutral palette ensure these furnishings never go out of style.
Muji has three options on offer, ranging from their ‘Wooden House’ ($US150 000) to their ‘Window Home’ ($US160 000) all the way to their luxury ‘Vertical House’ ($US210 000). This last structure reflects the crowded Tokyo streets, designed to be only 4.4 metres wides with multiple vertical levels, no internal walls or doors and giant windows for added sunlight.
With Muji’s recent arrival to our shores, we predict it won’t be long before flat-pack homes like these make their way onto our property markets.
