When the fashion world calls for responsible consumption, rationality, and respect for nature, minimalism is becoming one of the leading trends in the interior. Its oriental variety continues to inspire designers and architects around the world, largely because Japanese minimalism is not just a style, but a worldview.
The origins of aesthetics Japan is the birthplace of interior minimalism. At a time when luxurious interior styles reigned in the West, from classicism to art deco, the Japanese interior remained true to tradition and cultural values, and eventually turned into a fashion trend that swept the world in the 21st century.
Minimalism today The style, which came from the most high-tech country in the world, becomes a good basis for modern everyday scenarios, is friendly with technology, although it prefers to hide it behind furniture facades, meets modern eco-trends, and works well in tandem with styles with a related semantic load. Japanese minimalism is especially friendly with Scandinavian styles. Ergonomic Danish chairs feel great in the company of rice paper lanterns, sliding partitions, and Japanese ceramics.
Japan at your home Pure stylization is not in vogue, modern interiors tend to tell individual stories and use only certain features and elements of styles. Eastern minimalism can be a good interior base or a piquant “seasoning”.
To tune the interior in an oriental way, you will need to give up the abundance of decorative elements and abundance in principle. Furniture is only the most necessary and ergonomic, household appliances are hidden. Ideally, both the decoration and the filling should be made from natural materials. The element of tactility is important, so wabi-sabi like roughness and bumps are welcome.
