Why does every coffee shop from Silver Lake to Stockholm look the same? L.A. is where “minimalism” became mainstream and re-exported around the globe, making it the perfect place to discuss how a radical, anti-capitalist style became a powerful brand in itself. Kyle Chayka joins us to discuss his new book The Longing for Less: Living with Minimalism, which explores these paradoxes. Joined in conversation by Claus Benjamin Freyinger, co-principal and co-founder of The LADG.
