Minimalism style in interior design

Minimalism style comes from Western countries since the 60s, especially in the US. In Asian countries, Japan is the first country to follow this design style, we can see that most of the interior designs in Japan from modern to traditional are boldly minimalist. In interior design, minimalism can be understood as having as few decorative items as possible.
The basic decoration principle of this style is that the designs must have clear, unfussy lines and shapes, compact and light-colored decor items. However, today with many "variations", this style can be decorated with more colors and softer, softer patterns.

The principles and characteristics that make up the Minimalism style

1. “Less is more” - Less is more:

The first rule you need to understand and pay attention to is the selection of decorative furniture for your space. No need to put in too many decorative items, instead let the architecture have a lot of free space. You also need to pay attention to the way the furniture is placed in harmony and proportion. The highlight of this design is not how many items you put in it to decorate, it's that you put a few items but still bring a sense of convenience to your life, minimizing everything. Everything, though simple, brings a luxurious and unique image.

In the design of Co-IDB's Urban Coffee shop, the interior of the shop is also very minimalist, not too many decorations, the tables and chairs are also very simple and most of them have only one color. The arrangement and decoration are carefully calculated, creating more space for the shop, although the area of the restaurant is not too large, but with this design and decoration, the restaurant "cheats" more area, This gives us a much larger and more open space.

2. Colors for Urban Coffee's design:

Color selection also contributes to minimalism. Because it is a minimalist style, most of the colors also need to be chosen appropriately, usually monochrome, neutral colors such as white, black, gray, etc. You can choose for your room. a minimum of 3 colors (main color, background color, and accent color). With this color choice, it will help bring a visual effect to help you feel more spacious. It can be seen that although the style is simple, it does not make you feel monotonous.

You can see in the design of this Urban Coffee shop, the main color of the shop is gray, embellished with black and brown colors, creating an airy and very unique space. With this color choice, it will also help the shop become more modern, in addition, it will also help the overall image to be clean and not make customers feel too confused.

3. Light for minimalism style and the subtle use of Urban Coffee:

Choosing and adding light to the overall design is also important for this minimalist style. Because of the simple nature of the style, without the accompanying light, our design will be monotonous and appear dark. Therefore, choosing to design more transparent glass doors to be able to receive natural light also makes the design more prominent. At the same time, you can use lights with colors that match the overall color of the design, thus creating special beauty for your design._cc781905-5cde-3194-bb3b- 136bad5cf58d_

Understanding that, when designing for the shop, Co-IDB created a large glass door that can both separate the space into two parts, one is the indoor space, the other is the outdoor space. This will help the restaurant have more natural light and create a more airy space.
