Gifts for Minimalists
Glass French Press
For the coffee-loving minimalist, Yield’s Glass French Press is every bit as chic as it is practical. An evolution of the classic press pot, we think its timeless design is perfect for the minimal aesthetic.
Although glass and durability may not be an obvious duo, Yield’s use of premium heat-proof borosilicate glass means this glassware pick is much tougher than it looks. Overall, we’re huge fans of the way this piece effortlessly brings together function and beauty.
Concrete Hexagon Planter
As hard as gift shopping is, one can never go wrong with plants! Even the starkest of minimalist spaces have been known to embrace greenery, and this Concrete Hexagon Planter by Inside Store is our preferred way to do it.
Handmade in London, we love the raw Brutalist-inspired aesthetic of this piece. Given its dainty proportions, this planter is best suited for housing small indoor plants. In keeping with the minimalist theme, we especially love succulents and cacti!
Chord Brass Incense Gift Set
FYI, if you didn’t know already, incense are the new candles. For a gift that will stay on trend through 2019 and beyond, we turn to this Chord Brass Incense Gift Set by Cinnamon Projects.
The set comes complete with a beautifully elegant brass burner and a sample set of richly-scented incense. Take it from our team of minimalists at heart, the refined simplicity of this piece will make it an instant favorite with your loved one.
Simplicity and practicality is the aim of the game with the Norr Carrier by Ditte Buus Nielsen. Ostensibly a condiment stand, we actually think this chic tray could be used for all manner of decorative purposes. A coffee table accent for instance, or perhaps a perfume stand?
A curved brass handle gives the painted oak tray some sculptural intrigue. What’s more, Nielsen’s designs are made to last for generations, so you can be sure it’s sturdy enough to stand the test of time. All in all, versatility and durability-wise, it’s the gift that will keep on giving for years to come.
Underlining the minimalist aesthetic is an evanescent sense of quiet luxury, and the Stem Vase by Malgorzata Bany encapsulates this completely.
Drawing direct inspiration from ‘Ikebana’, the Japanese art of flower arrangement, this piece places emphasis on shape, line, form, and also texture. In true minimalist fashion, the Stem Vase chooses to accentuate the beauty of a single flower stem only. Though this piece may look decidedly uncomplicated, the wow factor lies in its unassuming simplicity.
