Disappearing design is a new way to design homes, wherein designing is kept to a minimum.
When you walk into a room which has been designed using the concept of ‘disappearing design,’ then you are most likely to see nothing. The ceilings as well as the walls will be bare. You may want to switch on the lights, but you will find no switches. The light may be working, but you will not see any visible sources of light. There will be music playing, but you won’t know where it is coming from. It will appear as if every single thing has disappeared into the plaster.
Blink and you’ll miss it.
Disappearing design is so much more than just covering the ottoman with a shawl or storing the stereo in a closet. It aims for a higher goal which involves all-invisible aesthetics, and creates singular spaces which flow from one place to another, and from one room to another.

Dining room tables that fold to just about an inch wide; handle-less drawers that open with the touch of a finger; data jacks and power outlets which seamlessly blend into the background; and touch panels and tablets put into the walls that offer access to varied home appliances, are just some of the mesmerizing aspects of disappearing design. Everything is flush mounted, and there are no deeply irritating eyesores like protrusions from walls or ceilings that produce distracting and annoying shadow lines.
Attention to Detail

When we look at disappearing design from a less superficial, more pragmatic viewpoint, then it will become apparent to us that this novel concept is aimed at maximizing the ground plan of homes, especially of the tiny urban apartments. Also, it focuses on minimizing the ‘visual noise’ produced by varied items like dust-prone vents, unwieldy knobs, and bulky TVs.
It is a fact that more and more people are looking for a clean look for their homes, wherein they do not need to scan the entire house looking for certain things.
A Concept for Everyone

Disappearing design allows you to hide just about anything. You can go for a ‘vanishing’ TV that appears like a mirror, beds that retreat into the ceiling, cabinets that are deficient of hardware, and light switches that disappear into the wall. Architects and designers have always wanted to give a clean and sleek look to houses. It is only now that it has come into vogue. Disappearing design is now not just sought by the elite, but also by people from all economic backgrounds.
