Weniger aber besser (Less but better) - Dieter Rams

I’m really digging this German quote by designer Dieter Rams. It’s a quote that’s in the book I’m currently reading, Essentialism. What the quote embodies is the pursuit to get to the essence of something by filtering through the noise.

I admire this focus to hone in on what’s needed and then keeping the urge to add more just for the sake of it at bay. I think it’s easy to over complicate something because we often look at simple and think something is wrong or missing from it. I definitely feel like I could embody more of this quote in my life.
