 Perfect for the new age of austerity: the theory behind John Pawson’s dinner and glassware designs for Belgian company When Objects Work is that you only need one perfect plate, bowl, and glass. "The origins of this collection of objects lie in the Cistercian monastery in Bohemia designed by John Pawson and the idea of creating a set of essential equipment for the monks’ refectory."
