For those who have ever wondered what it would be like to sleep in a Muji store

Japanese retailer Muji is renowned for its warm, minimal aesthetic which has won it fans around the globe. Now, the home and lifestyle company is taking the same ingredients that make its stores so successful and is translating them into Muji hotels.

The first will open later this year in Shenzhen, China, while a location in Tokyo’s trendy Ginza district will follow in Spring 2019. The Shenzhen hotel is slated to have 79 rooms, furnished entirely with items from Muji’s collection, right down to the Muji-branded soap and shampoo. A miniature model below gives an idea of what the rooms will look like when completed.

The Tokyo location, meanwhile, will be housed in an entirely new building which will contain a 6-floor Muji mega-store from the ground floor, with floors 7-10 consisting of hotel rooms. The project is being jointly developed by Mitsui Fudosan and Yomiuri Shimbun, according to a report by Spoon & Tomago, and should provide the ultimate shopping and leisure experience for Muji superfans.

The move to hotels seems like a natural evolution for the brand, coming just a few months after the debut of Muji Hut, a visually stunning line of pre-fabricated miniature houses which are currently being sold only in Japan.
