Robert Morris, the founder of minimalism in art between the 60s and the 70s of the last century, used to say that “simplicity of shape does not necessarily equate with simplicity of experience” and this could easily be the best motto for the period to come. On the edge of an ecological (but also financial) crisis which puts at risk the world as we have known it so far, simplification is a trend that will grow over time, because it is not anymore about aesthetic only, but survival as well.
Of course, we are talking about the survival of our planet Earth: if we want to stop its already advanced disruption, there is only one thing we can do, i.e. consuming less. But minimalism can help us also on a personal and psychological level. We have indeed discovered that having plenty of things is not a solution and it is not even important if we do not have someone to share them with. Making space in our wardrobe, on our shelves and in our mind will set us free, giving us the possibility to spend our resources (of money and energy) on something more important, really meaningful for our growth. Quality over quantity, from less is more to less, but better.
