The English architect and designer John Pawson has worked for decades in the vast field of design, from small projects to large ones. Regardless of the format, Pawson’s works are united by ever-recurring values, peace and quietness, that materialize in his designs as soulful minimalism.
The Japanese term ‘ma’ means just that: the negative space is described as an emptiness full of possibilities.
Pawson skillfully handles both the positive and negative spaces in his designs. As much as the visible matters, the emptiness in between also plays a crucial role. The Japanese term ‘ma’ means just that: the negative space is described as an emptiness full of possibilities. Mastering the art of empty space is the exceptional skill of deeply understanding proportions and harmony. The Frame table is designed by Pawson with gentle certainty acquired through experience. The steady essence of Frame is a result of its clean linearity and the immaculate balance of form.
The table is available in two sizes both in oak and ash.
