w223 Pawson

Quietly monumental

John Pawson’s design combines curved and rectilinear elements to create a quietly monumental volume. Notched cut-outs in the form contribute detail to the lamp’s distinctive profile, while also serving the functional purpose of shaping the way the light is cast and creating an entry point for the cable. Each version explores a contrasting interaction of material and light - the lambent potential of marble and the reflective quality of aluminium.

Artisanal marble

Solid marble of the finest quality, skilfully crafted by artisans with profound experience and technical know-how, gives w223 Pawson remarkable heft and beauty. In itself, w223 Pawson is a stunning piece; once turned on, its light further enhances the marble’s intrinsic luminosity.

Metallurgic mastery

The aluminium version of w223 Pawson is masterly and seamlessly crafted, featuring a striking, matte exterior and a hollow interior, for a fascinating play between shadows and reflections.

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.
