Ah—the purity of clean lines and the luxury of space! Such are the attractions of minimalist interiors. This homage to minimalism begins with period photos of interiors by designers such as Rietveld, Gropius, van der Rohe, Eileen Grey, Neutra, and Eames—the perfect prelude to images of modern and contemporary interiors inspired by these pioneers, including houses designed by Vincent van Duysen and John Pawson and an interior designed by Tadao Ando and Kengu Kuma.
