Less is More is one of the most frequently quoted and most influential principles of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. It demands abstraction, functionality and clarity. The minimalist design approach applies to space and light, rhythm and texture, shape and color. Less is more is also the common denominator of the projects that were carefully selected for this volume. The presented contemporary minimalist residential designs from around the world focus on the essence of life, of purely being, while placing the residents at the center of the work. The synopsis proves that nowadays in particular, a focus on the most essential is an important interior design theme that can lead to outstanding results.
