The Rise of Simplicity

20111103 151609 The Rise of Simplicity

We’re going to see the rise of a simpler aesthetic. Clean lines. Minimal cuts. Available, reparable, adaptable materials. An emphasis on finish but not adornment.

Why? Because simplicity is a function of constraints. The more constrained your resources (time, skill, materials), the simpler your product will be. (Or, if you lack discipline, the more unfinished.) And we’re hurtling into an era of constraints.
