Less is More - Mies van der Rohe Quote Poster

£16.99

Artist: Cinqpoints

"Less is more” - so said Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886-1969), himself a God of twentieth century architecture. This gorgeously simple embossed white poster is celebration of Mies and his famous dictum.

Architect Jim Eyre of Wilkinson Eyre summed up the importance of this and Mies's other famous words, 'God is in the details", rather nicely in a 2001 essay. To Eyre, the quotes  "reveal the absolute nature of Mies's architecture, which displays such clarity that our perception of his buildings is elevated to an almost spiritual experience. There is also a strong hint that working out details requires great application."

Approximate dimensions: 30 x 40 cm
Very nicely made in Europe by Cinqpoints.
