In this space, less is more. The key motto, “choosing the best by privileging less” examines designs which are no longer overly decorated and extrovertly extravagant. This is the “contemporary expression of an anti-bling-bling luxury”. Designs are minimalistic, inviting deep thoughts through the use of “bare geometry, simple lines, transparent materials, and lighter forms and gradations of colors”. It elevates the essence of life beyond the crowded and the noisy.
A space which re-establishes a bare and serene timelessness. Designed by Elizabeth Leriche, it “reveals the essence of Beauty in all its purity”. Despite common definitions of minimum, the term here is used to describe objects that are unique adding value and character to shape viewer’s perceptions and processes of an object in a room. Minimalist does not mean an empty room. Rather it refers to a new sense of order that was once lost in the masses of objects produced in our global market.
