The desire to identify new influences in the sphere of creativity is the driving force that prompted Sanlorenzo, one of the world's leading yacht and superyacht builders, to be the first in its field to launch collaborations with influential names in the world of design who, over the years, have brought on board a variety of different approaches and creative languages that have changed nautical design forever. This path has reached a new stage thanks to the collaboration with John Pawson, who was asked to interpret the interiors of a new Sanlorenzo metal superyacht, told through drawings and design sketches presented for the first time in this exhibition.
The unmistakable mark of the English architect, whose value lies in meticulous attention to detail, a fundamental theme for Sanlorenzo, associated with a rigorous search for simplicity, takes shape in the body of work that makes up the "A point of view" exhibition.
Structured in the two sections "Sanlorenzo" and "Home", the exhibition is a true tale of the designer's distinctive spatial poetry, which rests firmly on two cornerstones, the perfect calibration between space, proportion, light and materials, and the search for the essential by omitting the superfluous. Only when a project can no longer be improved by subtraction is the objective achieved.
These defining themes, which he pursued uninterruptedly for four decades, become the leitmotif of an exhibition that explores John Pawson's aesthetic vision through two parallel subjects: his own home and the new yacht he designed for Sanlorenzo.
“From the beginning my work has been about creating places where the eye is free to travel. It is this freedom of movement that lies at the heart of the exhibition I have made with Sanlorenzo.”
The idea that we can get in touch with the essence of space, through everything our gaze perceives, is a defining aspect of Pawson's work that affects every scale of design.
From architecture to design, from the design of an entire Cistercian Monastery to a small fork, for him "it’s all architecture". Each element is thus treated according to the same meticulous process in the name of a pure and essential study of detail.
The collaboration with Sanlorenzo marks a return to the water for Pawson and a new opportunity to explore his vision of rigorously simple architecture.
A project that, through a study of space and atmosphere, focal points of the English architect's philosophy, creates a welcoming environment that instils peace and tranquillity. The Master of Minimalism explores the harmony of emptiness through a perfect balance between light, a pure element that designs and maximises each space, proportions and surfaces brought to such purity and essence that they reflect the stillness of the sea, the sky and the simplicity of the marine horizon.
"Home: a self-portrait - a domestic space - a photograph".
Intimate and personal, John Pawson's new 'Home' series is a unique portfolio of eight photographs, half from his London home, where he has lived for more than 20 years, and half taken at his country house in the Cotswolds, Oxfordshire, which perfectly represent his poetic sense of refined simplicity.
Always a lover of photography, which he considers to be "a third eye", Pawson exhibits a series of particular self-portraits in which no human figure is ever immortalised but whose presence is evoked through details and nuances of light and shade that represent the testimony of a life lived and the private story of a domestic dimension.
