When you think about the term ‘minimalism’ the first words that you may think of are black and white, simplicity, order, geometric, or empty spaces. And you are right because they are in fact the main concepts on which minimalism is based.
Although it was born as an art movement in the 1960s, it was used for a few decades before that as a form of architecture. Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, the international architect and owner of the famous motto “less is more,” had started using minimalism in the 1930s to create a different form of architecture. He accomplished this minimalistic look without having to use many different materials during the creation process, instead, he only used what was required to execute the actual intentions of the project. This created interesting buildings that had never been imagined before such as the Barcelona Pavilion, shown below.
Nowadays, fashion is one of the most common industries in which designers play with minimalism. Monochromatic hues, such as black and white, make it easier to distinguish the clothing’s quality, as well as its lack of patterns. People who choose to wear minimalistic clothing usually have a clear perspective of life, as they have no obstacles to distract them. They are also more open-minded to new ideas, projects, and adventures.
