Like a remedy to the interminable racket of words and images, silence has a calming effect on the hyperactive, garrulous and loud times we live in. Home is a place where calm is restored and a growing desire for serenity can be expressed. Lifestyle and style give us the ‘silent treatment’. Beauty is unburdened from the artifice of pointless ornamentation and devotes itself to a quest for the essential. The reduction of materials, geometric abstraction, transparency, halo effects, wireframe structures, ethereal hues and black and white comprise the formal rules of silence. The spartan simplicity of archetypal shapes foster contemplative moments during which the mind is at rest. Sensitive, discrete and elegant objects re-establish inner tranquillity. Please do not disturb this sensual, poetic, harmonious and luxurious minimalism. Shh
