JP Water Glass
The origin of the JP Water Glass lies in the cisterian monastery in Bohemia designed by John Pawson. From the idea of creating a set of essential equipment for the monk’s refectory has evolved a collection which represents the elegant minimum for the contemporary table.
The origins of the collection of objects lie in a new cisterian monastery in Bohemia, also designed by John Pawson. From the idea of creating a set of essential equipment for the monks’ refectory has evolved 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 with a consummate material palette, as seen in the JP Carafe.
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 own practice in 1981.
The JP Water Glass looks great partnered with the matching Carafe.
