The Japanese lifestyle retailer is seeking feedback on its new living space designed to create a balance of natural light and air

Japanese retailer Muji is best known for its simple but elegant household goods, office supplies and lifestyle items. Now, the brand is taking its aesthetic to the next level by designing a house specifically meant to create a harmonious balance of light and air.

The Window House is a new abode that is fully furnished with Muji fixings, which experiments with the amount and positions of windows. Those who sign up will live there in Kamakura for two years free of charge. Additionally, those who live in the house will be given free Muji furniture for life. All residents are expected to do is provide detailed feedback about living in the space, such as if the design works as it was intended.
