Minimalism In Furniture Design

  • Post author:

Minimalism is an art form that has affected us in one form or another with or without us knowing about it. From modern websites to cars to products to billboards. Knowingly or unknowingly we have been part of the movement and have appreciated it all along the course. What exactly is Minimalistic Furniture design and what is minimalism in general? Minimalism is an art movement that originated in post-world war II in 1950 influencing everything from visual art, music, cinemas, home designs, furniture, automobiles, and brands. It has influenced everything on its path and knowingly or unknowingly. Some believe it provides intentionality, clarity, and purpose. It rose to its performance in the 1960s and 1970s.

When it comes to furniture and design, a tagline can be less is more. Minimalism tries to retain what is important and avoid what does not serve any purpose. So, in the minimally designed home, you will not find furniture which doesn’t find a purpose or a design that doesn’t increase the utility of the furniture. They are defined by subtle understatement of the form with a large emphasis on aesthetics and appeal. Similarly, there will be lack of color and any other artwork which exist only for visual purpose. The description above will make you believe minimalism is for people who are boring and pale but mind you it isn’t like that. Coming to the furniture how are they different from supposing classical furniture with their elaborate design and woodwork reminding of an ancient palace. Pale and less sore in color compared to other forms of furniture, minimalistic designed furniture have usually straight-line, even the curved ones have don’t have much detail to them. A lot of the furniture will look like a bare and hollow piece of wood for the carpenters to work on. By stripping the complexity of the furniture designers retain the essence and functionality of the furniture.

Those who design their homes and choose furniture which is minimalistic designed are the ones who choose to live a very clutter-free life. Those who seek meaning and purpose in whatever they are doing. Those who try to want to dispel the myth of materialism, a byproduct of market capitalism that screams more is better, possession of more leads to happiness.
