True meaning of minimalism

Minimalism is often practiced to achieve simplicity in design. Dmitry Fadeyev of Usability Post beautifully puts down the true meaning of minimalism.

I can see how minimalism can have a clear meaning in art, where the artist is free to create their own rules and ideas. Minimalism is a style that can be characterized by that use of simple, basic forms and white space. But when we apply this term to everyday design, the term begins to lose meaning. Clear, clean and simple design isn’t minimalist. It’s just good, clear design.

And about simplicity, he says:

Simplicity isn’t a design trend, it’s an attribute of good design.
