John Pawson, OBE is a British architect and designer. Well known for his minimalist aesthetic, his noted architectural works include the Wooden Chapel in Germany and the Abbey of Our Lady of Nový Dvůr in the Czech Republic. Pawson's work is based in form and material, with little ornamentation. The process of reductive design may appear simplistic at first; it is not. Minimalist design is often 'cold' and cumbersome despite the efforts of the designer. A master such as Pawson designs product that exudes a special warmth and beauty in addition to its functionality.
