The JP Carafe, made of Bohemian crystal, is an object of minimal beauty. The Carafe has all the properties of traditional crystal, being clear and quite heavy, yet absent of any ornamentation. Even the proportions within the unique shape of the JP carafe are perfect, a testament to Pawson’s expertise in minimalism.
The origins of the John Pawson’s collection of objects lie in a new Cisterian monastery in Bohemia, also designed by Pawson. From the idea of creating a set of essential equipment for the monks’ refectory has, in turn, evolved into a collection which represents an elegant minimum for the contemporary table. The forms are simple but powerful, refined but sensuously lyrical, uniting rigorous attention to details of scale, proportion, and fabrication.
Pawson was born and brought up in Halifax, Yorkshire, the youngest of five children. Coming from a wealthy family, he was schooled at Eton. After a period in the family textile business, Pawson left for Japan in his mid-twenties, moving to Tokyo during the final year of his stay, where he visited the studio of Japanese architect and designer Shiro Kuramata. On his return to England, he enrolled at the Architecture Association in London, leaving to establish his practice in 1981.
