This closely relates to #23333 (New icons).
There's a lot of visual clutter and noise in the admin (gradients, shadows, etc.) and not a whole lot of breathing room. We're moving towards new, vector icons, but they currently don't fit stylistically within the admin.

You can see a comparison of the current navbar with icons vs. new icons and a flatter, more spacious navbar:
How do people feel about the direction we're moving in?
