Design John Pawson
Dimensions See image
John Pawson’s design combines curved and rectilinear elements to create a quietly monumental volume. Notched cut-outs in the form contribute detail to the lamp’s distinctive profile, while also serving the functional purpose of shaping the way the light is cast and creating an entry point for the cable. Each version explores a contrasting interaction of material and light – the lambent potential of marble and the reflective quality of aluminium.
John Pawson was born in Yorkshire, in the north of England, in 1949. As Alvar Aalto’s bronze door handle has been characterised as the ‘handshake of a building’, so a sense of engaging with the essence of a philosophy of space through everything the eye sees or the hand touches is a defining aspect of Pawson’s work. Everything is traceable back to a consistent set of preoccupations with mass, volume, surface, proportion, junction, geometry, repetition, light and ritual. In this way, even something as modest as a fork can become a vehicle for much broader ideas about how we live and what we value.
