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!
