Have you heard of a micro-house before? It's pretty much exactly what the name implies. In recent years, a movement has emerged that is committed to living with what is fair and necessary but also not limiting itself to living in the same place and taking your house with you.

Ikea has joined this idea in collaboration with Vox Creative and American RV, a company dedicated to the manufacture of this type of micro-houses. Together they have jointly designed an ecological version that includes, among many other things, solar panels and a compostable toilet.

The project is called "Tiny Home Project".
