What is Minimalism? 

More than just an interior design ‘style’, minimalism is a principle – that of removing all unnecessary decor or features from an object and leaving only those that serve the purpose of the object. 

To quote Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, “Less is More”.

Minimalism for a country that’s emotional, and expressive; where our natural milieu is riotous, and there’s so much pigment and robustness everywhere that the built environment must really echo that. 

The framework of traditional Indian architecture provides an ideal base for minimalist decor and with the current sustainable movement; have been effortlessly quick to fuse the two.

India is well known for its decadent design and its inclination for kaleidoscopic colors but recently the design world has begun to cautiously dip in the minimalistic pool. 

Indian minimalism tends to indulge in warmer, more rustic wood. This return to natural material plus the addition of stone accents means that while the minimalist theory is still in place, the design takes on a more comforting, familiar aesthetic that is missing from the sleek forms elsewhere.

Minimalism promises to deliver chic, uncomplicated style that while unassuming will convey grandeur far beyond the boundaries of its simplicity.

A mix of the colors, grey and beige, offers in its spectrum an assortment of insignias that are neutral enough to stay minimalist, yet have the warmth that charms to the Indian consumer’s thoughtfulness.
