There is something extremely satisfying about minimalism, and not just from an aesthetic perspective either. The clean, free feeling that comes with a life devoid of excess and clutter is also good for our mental health, giving us space to breathe and concentrate on things more important and fulfilling than the acquisition of material goods.

There are certain things that we do still need however. While marketing gurus come up with ever more complex and distracting ways of catching the eye, this list, compiled by Bored Panda, is all about gorgeous minimalist design. Objects and products stripped down to their bare essentials, leaving nothing but what is absolutely necessary. There is so much beauty in their simplicity, it makes us want to go home, clear out all the unnecessary clutter and start all over again!

Scroll down to check out the list for yourself, and don't forget to upvote your favorite designs!

At least 3 places to plug in cords (cannot see the bottom surface of the cube), and the cube doesn't really stick out any further than most cords do. To me, this isn't any worse than the stupid rocker design light switches I'm stuck with in my entire house.

I like it, but it would be better if the color matched the wall and the plate was flush. (Think of all the dust that will collect behind the plate!)

Doubanji

Yeah, definitely agree the plate should be flush. Maybe have different options of colour and some kind of lock so kids can't play with it and electrocute themselves...

How is this any more space conserving than a regular socket?

Doubanji
Community Member

It may not be space conserving but it looks better and is far easier to child proof! Plus it does allow you to plug more things into a smaller surface area than a normal horizontal plug.

honestly this is kinda unsafe for a baby. They could easily pop it out, and stick a fork in. If you put the outlet plugs in a normal socket, it's really hard for babies to get off
