MUJI HUT: The housing option NYC didn’t know it needed

Written by

First a dumpster Airbnb, now this.

Minimalistic Japanese brand MUJI just debuted its latest project, MUJI HUT, during Tokyo Design Week, and the concept revolves around enjoying the simpler things in life.  

In Japan, you can buy a ready-to-live-in hut for $25,000 to $40,000 and use it to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. The serene and modern houses are easy and cheap to install, and judging by the interior shot below, they’re pretty darn cute!

The huts are technically meant to be in the wilderness, where you can be alone, read a book and listen to the sound of rain. But our questions are, when are MUJI HUTS coming to NYC and where the hell can we put them? Your best friend’s rooftop? A random Brooklyn lot? We could all use a little peace and quiet now and then, right?
