The Elementarist is a magazine on minimalist lifestyle that covers minimalist living, design and technology celebrating simplicity.

We understand minimalism as a critical mindset, not an ideal state. An attitude that values time over ownership and appreciates simplicity in art, design and technology. And a behaviour that is sustainable, post-consumerist and embracing futuristic ways of living and working.

The Elementarist features ideas, peoples, products, technology and art embodying minimalism. It is edited by a team of people living, defining and applying minimalism differently and does not give a blue print for minimalism. The Elementarist is about exhibiting the beauty and diversity of minimalism. And offering people inspiration to challenge their way of living.

Every journey into minimalism is different. Some start abruptly, some evolve over time.  Ours started almost a decade ago and took us through more than 60 countries across the world.

Hi, we are Veronika and Fabian, the founders of The Elementarist. German, Russian, French, and somewhat Australian and Chinese. Traveling has made us minimalist. That is not only because we have learned to live with less. It has opened our eyes for the diversity of this world. It has made us discover the multitude of lifestyles that are far away from consumerism. It has made us appreciate experiences over things. Minimalism has challenged our thoughts and believes and lead us to reduce our life’s complexity for the sake of living more.

Nothing has created more value to our life then minimalism, this is why we want to share this with you. The Elementarist is a resource for minimalism for everybody. A place of exchange where aspiring minimalists meet long-term practitioners. A place not only promoting our personal view but individual ideas, stories and experiences from all around the world.
