Is it a mirage? No, it’s a gigantic ‘Maraya (mirror)’ in the middle of nowhere.

Italian firm Gio Forma Studio Associato has designed ‘Maraya’: a gigantic site-specific mirrored cube in the middle of the Saudi Arabian desert, operating as a concert hall and land art installation. The word ‘Maraya’, in Arabic means mirror, better identifies the installation that has been covered with reflective panels: which discovers a new view of the surrounding desert.

The 5000 square meter cultural event space features an immersive theatre, interactive exhibitions, and kinetic art by Italian creative agency Todo.

Tokyo’s Muji Hotel now taking reservations at its sets to open on April 4th.

MUJI is opening its first MUJI Hotel in Japan next week. It will be the third hotel from the brand, the other two being in China.

The hotel itself has been described by MUJI as both “anti-gorgeous” and “anti-cheap,” instead of focusing on the brand’s signature minimalist aesthetic and high-quality approach.  The space is set to feature 79 rooms, set over the sixth to tenth floors of the new MUJI global flagship store. The interiors embody the understated, minimalist aesthetic that the brand is well-known and loved for.

April 4 is the grand opening of both store and hotel, but it’s already possible to reserve a room on the website.
