“Being a child of modernism I have heard this mantra all my life—Less is more. One morning upon awakening I realised that it was total nonsense, it is an absurd proposition … If you look at a Persian rug, you cannot say that less is more because you realise that every part of that rug, every change of colour, every shift in form is absolutely essential for its aesthetic success. You cannot prove to me that a solid blue rug is in any way superior. I have an alternative to the proposition that I believe is more appropriate — Just enough is more.
