Simplicity isn’t just a visual style. It’s not just minimalism or the absence of clutter. It involves digging through the depth of the complexity.
To be truly simple, you have to go really deep.
The better way is to go deeper with the simplicity, to understand everything about it and how it’s manufactured. You have to deeply understand the essence of a product in order to be able to get rid of the parts that are not essential.

The only relationship architects can establish with chaos is to join the ranks of those who oppose it, and to fail.
And it’s only in failure, by chance, that chaos is produced.

To contaminate means to go outside of the closed and protected perimeters of uncontaminated things, and make them react together in order to obtain unexpected and more complete results.
