Minimalist architect John Pawson will launch his first home accessories range on 24 May. The range, which will be available in the homewares shop Vessel, features functional household objects, including a bowl, tray, vase, picture frame and candle holder. Each object consists of two materials and has two separate functions. For instance, the bowl can serve either as a fruit dish when laid flat, or as a sculpture when upright. Nadia Demetriou Ladas, owner of Vessel, says that although the function of the objects came first, the forms are unmistakably Pawson. ‘He looked at his house to find what objects were absolutely essential and then created these large and monumental pieces,’ she says.
