  • Concept in design; signs of an abusive relationship.

    A concept is no less then a meta-definition of an idea that should be contained in the design.

    Nature tends to entropy, so why do we love minimalism so much a contra-nature feature? Minimalism is artificial. We cannot find minimalist in nature in a non artificial way (not recurring to specialized tools to see atoms for instance), or in a pure state like a perfect sphere. Consider an Atom as the building block […]
