concept ZEN philosophy that believes that simplicity is not just aesthetic value and
moral perception which analyzes the nature of truth and reveals the inner qualities

monochrome range with emphasis on neutral earth tones. The whole concept is
based on precise geometry that makes clean horizontal lines, low elements of urban
