Pendant Tube

by John Pawson

‘Church architecture has been a real source of fantastic art throughout the centuries and lights and candles are a big part of the decoration’ – John Pawson. Pendant Tube was created for large spaces, drawing its inspiration from churches and in particular the atmosphere created within the buildings.The design clearly visualises the artist’s philosophy and, while being minimal and non-obtrusive in its appearance during the day, greatly impacts the ambience of larger spaces during the night.

John Pawson

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.
