John Pawson

United Kingdom (1949)

After a single trip to Japan in his youth, John Pawson began on an inspired journey of mini­mal­ism in design that contin­ues today. Much of his work as an archi­tect in Britain has concen­trated on private resi­dences. Pawson enjoys the deep connec­tion that comes with design­ing a home for a client. His work has also taken him down the road of creat­ing spaces for Calvin Klein as well as the Design Museum in London. His aesthetic favors clear spaces, which he achieves through long swaths of stone and unadorned wood. His product designs are meant to comple­ment his archi­tec­tural work, the Abbey of Our Lady of Nový Dvůr in the Czech Republic.
