John Pawson Revisited – A Lesson in Lighting
I’ve engaged in debate with my fellow interior design students regarding the minimalist interiors/style of the acclaimed John Pawson and in particular the bathroom entitled ‘Pawson House 1994’.
Opinion was very divided as to the aesthetic appeal of this bathroom and its minimal, very simplified design. I had suggested that part of the reason why it appeared a little hostile and lacking in warmth was because of the harsh natural lighting combined with stone material, and that perhaps with artificial lighting, this space would probably appear much more inviting and less severe. There’s only one way to settle this debate and that’s to design a replica model via Google Sketchup and Maxwell Render. Yes, you know what’s coming next: keep scrolling down!
