If you thought you'd seen a minimalist hotel, you haven't seen anything until you check out the Kyoto Kokusai Hotel by the architectural firm Kengo Kuma and Associates. This simplistic hotel design showcases what many houses in Japan favor -- basic design schemes and simplistic living.

The Kyoto Kokusai Hotel features not only stunning views of Japanese city life and modern rooms with wondrous wooden bathrooms, but a striking steak house complete with authentic floor matt seating! The Kyoto Kokusai Hotel is the perfect combination of modern and traditional design.

Implications - Minimalist designs like this hotel continue to gain popularity as a backlash to popular, extravagant consumer habits like hoarding. Consumers continue to favor products that allow them to simplify their lives and de-clutter, which businesses should be conscious of.
