Less is More

Less is More
Less is More

Alessio Pinto architect designed this flush plate, who’s inspired by the history of the mechanism, and a desire to give it an innovative form and launch it into the future. An essential stainless steel form, with two cords, whose purpose is unequivocal, projecting out from semi-circular reels mounted on a metal base. Less is More has no buttons. Without removing anything, without adding anything. Just looking with new eyes at the elements in play. The object sheds its old skin and reaches out towards the user. At a glance we realise the meaning of “Plus” and “Minus”. All it takes is viewing the cords as analog signs. Shorter or less short.
