12 Products for those who swear by minimalism
Taking the world by storm, minimalism is all about reducing the frills and going back to basics. But, going minimal doesn’t mean compromising on style, functionality, or durability.
- When did minimalism begin? Although the trend has become popular again, it actually started in the 1960s. Like many lifestyle trends, it comes from the art world.
- Is minimalism just about wearing no colors? It can be, if you want! But, minimalism is actually a state of mind.
- Where can I find more modern designs? Right here!
Minimalism isn’t just the latest style craze, although it has infiltrated everything from architecture to clothing to tech design. The trend is more about a way of life; a simple way of living. This might be achieved through muted colors, fewer materials, or simple design. Regardless, the object takes on a minimal form to intuitively fit into your lifestyle.
