The term Minimalism is defined as a design or style in which the simplest and fewest elements are used to create the maximum effect. Minimalism had its origins in the arts with artwork featuring simple lines, only a few colours and careful placement of those lines and colours. Recently, it has become representative of a lifestyle that aims to remove clutter from all facets of life.
