Minimalissimo

Minimalissimo is passionate about minimalism in design. We strongly believe in Mies Van der Rohe’s words, "less is more", and Dieter Rams's ten principles for good design. That is why we, an enthusiastic international editorial team, curate the most exciting, original and engaging work from both established names and talented newcomers. We aim to deliver to our readers a diverse understanding of minimalism, touching on many areas, including art, architecture, fashion, graphic, package, and industrial design.

Have a look at some of our articles: minimalissimo.com

Issue Nº1

After six years and more than 1800 articles, we now want to publish our first printed issue, which is dedicated to highlighting some of our greatest features ever, as well as exploring the minimalist design ethos and its influence on creativity. We have outlined five wide ranging disciplines—architecture, art, fashion, graphic & package design, and industrial design—to showcase what we feel is outstanding minimalism. We gain fascinating insights into the working lives of some of the most renowned artists, architects and designers of today. We interview Danish  multidisciplinary studio Norm Architects, Swiss artist Zimoun, unisex fashion designer Rad Hourani, and Vitsœ managing director Mark Adams, who worked alongside the great Dieter Rams for more than twenty years.

Specifications:

  • Pages: 160
  • Size: 21cm(w) x 27cm(h)
  • Paper: 120gsm uncoated (pages) / 300gsm soft-touch laminate uncoated (covers)

Why Kickstarter?

Our editorial team wrote and designed the magazine with great care. Whilst we have done all that we can to create a print version of Minimalissimo Magazine, we now want you to join us. We would use the money raised from this campaign to send Issue Nº1 to print and distribution, and make our magazine available to a larger audience.

So please, get behind this project if you share our passion. Whether you pledge or just share the link to this page, everything helps. Thank you!

Risks and challenges

There are absolutely no risks of this project not being completed. The magazine articles and layouts have been completed on our own time and at our own expense. We just need to raise the required funds to print the magazine and distribute it. If we raise the funds, we print. If we don't raise the required funds we don't go to print immediately and will be forced to begin a new funding campaign.
