About the Designer
John Pawson England (1949 - )
John Pawson has been designing buildings and objects for more than twenty-five years, with work realised on four continents for a wide range of clients and covering a breadth of scales and programmes. From the beginning his approach to making architecture has drawn comparisons with the art movement known as Minimalism. More helpful, perhaps, is its characterisation as an attitude to space, light and proportion. On his acclaimed collaboration with Demeyere, Pawson says, "A museum director once said of my work, 'Everything starts with the kitchen'. What he meant was that houses are the heart of the work and kitchens are the heart of the houses. My collaboration with Demeyere started with the idea of providing these most important of contemporary living spaces with a set of core equipment which would combine functional sophistication with the highest design values. A pan might seem like a very straightforward object to design, but the reality is that smallness of scale does not equate with lack of complexity. The union of form and function must be seamless. There would have been no point in identifying the perfect simple profile, for example, if the lip did not pour well. Visual comfort would likewise lose its value if the pan did not feel good in the hand. I knew I could leave the more specialised technical issues to the team at Demeyere. My efforts have focused on the shape of the body and on the detail and angle of the junction between body and handle. My goal has been something which looked different, but right, equally at home over a flame or on a table û modern but not modish and thus liable to lose its freshness quickly." Although his work has been described as having an abstract quality, it is rigorously grounded in a precise understanding of the grain of everyday life. Whether a house, store, gallery, bridge, monastery or cookpot, for Pawson the fundamental challenge is always the same: how people, space and objects may be brought into harmony with one another.

The Tesla of saucepans

I gave this as a gift to my parents upon completion of a kitchen remodel - I felt they needed (induction-ready) cookware that matched the sleek look and high-end function of their new environment. They were very impressed. This is a gorgeous, sculptural piece of equipment - If I could afford to buy myself the whole set I would do it in a second. My only concern is the weight - manageable with a saucepan but I'm not sure how easy it would be to manage the 8-qt casserole, which is on my short list. Thanks to Wayfair for making this semi-affordable!
Modern Art for the Contempory Kitchen

This even if your kitchen, like ours, is in (very gradual) transition from traditional to modern and will likely be a hybrid. Pawson pots are as much decorative accessories as they are cooking utensils. They are simply the most solid and stable on the market and conduct heat brilliantly. Moderate to low heat and fast prep. If you haven't had a love affair with Belgian cookware for decades, this, from the House of Demeyere, makes a grand introduction. Next up: Un tour gastronomique de Bruxelles. A special cleaner *is* available stateside, and a plastic scrubber is best for stubborn residue. O.K., in the spirit of full disclosure, you may have to get a second job in a jobless economy to pay for it, but display, and use, this Pawson up front on your cooktop with pride! Accept that the European holiday may then be relegated to the back burner. C'est la (bonne) vie.
