On Elegance

Good design leans towards simplicity not complexity. (Mark Rosewater)

Fragments from imaginary dialogues

“What is elegance?”

“To understand something is to construct a mental model of it. Different people will build different models, based on their experiences and what elements they focus on.”

“What is your model?”

“It’s a practical model. 

For me, Elegance is conceptually connected with Beauty and Simplicity, and is reached through a process of Subtraction. 

My model of elegance

Elegance is achieved when there is nothing left to take away.
