PENDANT TUBE

by JOHN PAWSON

Inspired by Church architecture and pillar candles which are essential part of the decoration, John Pawson designed Pendant Tube. The lamp was created for large spaces, drawing its inspiration from churches and in particular the atmosphere created within the buildings. The design embodies the artist’s philosophy and, while simple and unobtrusive in its appearance during the day, has a significant impact on the ambiance 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 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.
