If you write computer programmes then it is likely that you have heard about wabi sabi style programming. Funnily enough it is in this area that wabi sabi first got to get really known in the western world.

And from there it is heading straight to interiors and art. The interiors is well documented and we can expect a lot more stuff over the next couple of years.

In art it serves as the perfect inspiration through "seeing perfection in the imperfect", leading the way for a more relaxed lifestyle.

The most famous statement for a modern understanding of wabi sabi is made by the author and artist Leonard Koren and it explains it like this:

Wabi-sabi is a beauty of things imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete.

It is a beauty of things modest and humble.

It is a beauty of things unconventional.
