John Pawson


I was recently introduced to John Pawson by Cro and DJ. Pawson is a British architect/designer who’s minimalism hits me on a whole other level. Maybe it’s his unorthodox path to design. Many it is from his tutelage by Japanese designer Shiro Kuramata. Whatever it is his work straddles that line of minimalism that moves between meaningful and meaningless which is such a fine line. Like a true Architect he designs furniture, housewares, writes, and occasionally designs homes.


Modern 50 is a part of a small artist collective which strives to create an ever-evolving nonlinear consumer lifestyles gallery. We showcase and discover intrinsically valuable decorative arts and furniture to convey a different impression of 20th century design. Modern 50 is using Indexhibit. Very fresh.
