Tiny House: this Ikea apartment doesn't cost CHF a month

Tiny House: this Ikea apartment doesn’t cost CHF a month

IKEA is subject to the owner in Japan. A Swedish furniture store is looking for a renter for an apartment furnished with IKEA furniture. Monthly rent: only 99 yen – the equivalent of 80 cents. However, if you want to live in it, you have to settle for a little.

A room in Tokyo is only 10 square metres. Interested parties can apply for residency until December 3. The lease is valid until January 15, 2023.

A marketing gimmick for densely populated Japan

10 square meters is not a lot. Actually too little for an entire apartment. However, the room is relatively high. Downstairs at the entrance there is a kitchen, bathroom and small office. A ladder leads to the bed at the top of the apartment.

Ikea markets the tiny apartment. In Japanese cities, many people live in a very small area. Ikea’s campaign message is clear: Your furniture saves space, it’s functional yet aesthetic.

Who is moving into the tiny apartment? Applicants must be at least 20 years old and be a member of the Ikea Family Club. Ikea does not disclose how many applicants have already registered. (gif)
