A phrase attributed to famous Modernist architect Mies Van Der Rohe, 'less is more' is the notion that simplicity and clarity leads to good design. While it may have been popularised in architecture, this mantra spans across all facets of design, health, food, fashion, lifestyle and more.

I first came across this phrase during architecture school, and was drawn to Japanese minimalist architects and their approach to design, using a few elements but doing more with them. In this video We break down six elements of minimalist house design and minimalism.
