“Whenever I think about going to the country for the weekend, I start imagining a small house with everything needed for a short stay, a place to cook, a place to eat, a place to wash, and a place to sleep. The dream usually collapses when I think of the complexity of building a new house, but with this project I realised there was a chance to design such a house as a product rather than a one-off.” Said Jasper Morrison.
“There is a certain charm when you hear the word ‘hut’,” Fukasawa writes in his statement “Not quite a holiday house, yet not as simple as going camping. If there is a small hut, there is a feeling that one could slip into nature anytime. I thought that living small in the smallest of structures is a Muji kind of living.”
