John Pawson Signature Kitchen


Through a deep exploration and comprehensive design process, each Bespoke Obumex Kitchen project is unique and fully made-to-measure, with no detail left untouched.
The John Pawson kitchen concept was Obumex’s first collaboration, in 1996, with the British architectural designer known for his minimalism. His work investigates approaches to fundamental problems of space, proportion, light, and materials, lending his kitchen a powerful and sober aesthetic. Simple geometry and the celebration of wood and stone create a classic ideal shared by many cultures, evoking a lifestyle free from excess. It is perhaps because of this universal appeal that this signature kitchen continues to be in such high demand, both in Belgium and worldwide.

Design Story

John Pawson

John Pawson

John Pawson has spent over thirty years making rigorously simple architecture that speaks of the fundamentals but is also modest in character. His body of work spans a broad range of scales and typologies, from private houses, sacred commissions, galleries, museums, hotels, ballet sets, yacht interiors and a bridge across a lake.

As Alvar Aalto’s bronze door handle has been characterized as the ‘handshake of a building’, so a sense of engaging with the essence of a philosophy of space through everything the eye sees or the hand touches is a defining aspect of Pawson’s work. His method is to approach buildings and design commissions in precisely the same manner, on the basis that ‘it’s all architecture’.

Whether at the scale of a monastery, a house, a saucepan or a ballet, everything is traceable back to a consistent set of preoccupations with mass, volume, surface, proportion, junction, geometry, repetition, light and ritual. In this way, even something as modest as a fork can become a vehicle for much broader ideas about how we live and what we value.
