Holocene No. 4: John Pawson

Pawson’s design for Holocene No. 4 takes the notion of the oil lantern and meticulously reduces it to its essence in terms of function, form and palette, as a container for fire, with the means to carry or suspend. Crucible-like in profile, the lantern is fabricated in stainless steel and aluminium, with matte exterior surfaces and a polished internal core, to reflect and amplify the flame. The piece is designed for indoor and outdoor use and scaled to feel comfortable in a range of applications, singly or in groups, on the dining table or a windowsill, standing on the floor or hanging from a wall.

John Pawson

For over 30 years, John Pawson CBE’s work – rigorous in its simplicity and modesty – has addressed the fundamentals of architecture. It spans a wide range of scales and typologies, from private residences, museums, and hotels, to ballet sets and sacred spaces. Like Alvar Aalto’s bronze door handle – “the handshake of a building” – Pawson’s work engages with a philosophy of space through sight and touch. He applies the exact same approach to both buildings and design commissions: “it’s all architecture”. Regardless of scale, all of his projects share a consistent focus on mass, volume, surface, proportion, junction, geometry, repetition, light and ritual. In this way, even a modest fork becomes a vehicle for much broader ideas about how we live and what we value.
