John Pawson



BritIsh architect John Pawson CBE, who founded his firm of the same name in 1981, is often hailed as the father of modern architectural minimalism. Although a title he would most likely poke fun at, for almost forty years Pawson has championed nothingness as the most straightforward form of beauty.

During his lustrous career, simplicity as a philosophy is something he has explored in retail designs for Jil Sander, Calvin Klein, Christofer Kane and in various monasteries, churches, musea, residential projects, hotels and now a complete contemporary bathroom collection for COCOON.
