“I wanted something that disappears in the day time, and does the opposite at night.” – John Pawson
Horizon is a pendant that, without being obtrusive, blends in to modern interiors. Its body ranges from translucent to opaque and is hand blown with a balloton technique which creates the beautifully textured surface.

John Pawson was born in 1949 in Halifax, Yorkshire. After visiting the studio of Japanese architect and designer Shiro Kuramata, he enrolled at the Architecture Association in London, leaving to establish his own practice in 1981. From the outset Pawson’s work has focused on ways of approaching fundamental problems of space, proportion, light and materials - themes he also explored in his book Minimum, which examines the notion of simplicity in art, architecture and design across a variety of historical and cultural contexts. Early commissions included homes for the writer Bruce Chatwin, opera director Pierre Audi and collector Doris Lockhart Saatchi, together with art galleries in London, Dublin and New York.
