The Beauty of Space – Living in Minimal Style (Braun Publishing, 2016) by Chris van Uffelen gives inspiration for minimalist elegance of domestic spaces.
The esthetic aim of minimalism is to achieve a compelling functional and design outcome by focusing on what is essential and at the core of things. The longing for clarity has been a perpetually recurring topic of art and design history. Beauty ideals were influenced on and off by this approach for centuries. Today especially, the design concept of ‘less is more’ is seen applied to the handling of space and light, rhythm and texture, shape and color. This volume presents residences from around the world in which this principle holds true. These minimalist designs focus on the essence of living, of purely being, while placing the residents at the center of the creative process.
