For those who covet a John Pawson–designed environment (myself included) but lack the fiscal reserves, here's something more accessible: a roundup of Pawson-designed kitchen tools, which bring a new level of asceticism to the domestic front.

N.B. John Pawson is the current artist-in-residence at the Cape Cod Modern House Trust (see Hotels, Lodging & Restaurants: Kugel/Gips House in Wellfleet) and will be speaking about his work on Saturday evening, August 21, at the Wellfleet Public Library. For more information and tickets, go to the Cape Cod Modern House Trust.

The cookware is made with seven layers of heavy stainless steel around a hermetically sealed copper core for even heating and professional results. A Six-Piece Cookware Set (includes a small and a large casserole/stockpot with lids, a saute pan, and a frying pan) is $1,015 at Horne; the pieces are also available individually.
