w223 Pawson

Quietly monumental

Available Q1, 2023

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, skillfully 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.

Design
John Pawson

John Pawson was born in Yorkshire, in the north of England, in 1949. As Alvar Aalto’s bronze door handle has been characterised as the ‘handshake of a building’, so a sense of engaging with the essence of a philosophy of space through everything the eye sees or the hand touches is a defining aspect of Pawson’s work. Everything is traceable back to a consistent set of preoccupations with mass, volume, surface, proportion, junction, geometry, repetition, light and ritual. In this way, even something as modest as a fork can become a vehicle for much broader ideas about how we live and what we value.
