For a window manager which places and emphasis on minimalism
and aesthetics, without compromising basic functionality,
for me there is only one choice:

 blackbox-0.61.1 -- for the manager itself

 bbkeys-0.3.6 -- for keyboard shortcuts if you want them

Worth consulting is:

But at the end of the day, each to his/her own. :-)

Many regards,
