“Minimalism (Italian, pl. minimalismi) describes movements in various forms of art and design, where the work is stripped down to its most fundamental features.”

“The term “minimalist” is often applied colloquially to designate anything which is spare or stripped to its essentials.”
“The term minimalism is also used to describe a trend in design and architecture where the subject is reduced to its necessary elements.”
“Architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe adopted the motto “Less is more” to describe his aesthetic tactic of arranging the numerous necessary components of a building to create an impression of extreme simplicity, by enlisting every element and detail to serve multiple visual and functional purposes (such as designing a floor to also serve as the radiator, or a massive fireplace to also house the bathroom).”
