Known for a minimalist aesthetic that places emphasis on light, material and proportion, Pawson has lent his modernist sensibility to everything from a Cistercian monastery in the Czech Republic to countless private homes, luxury yachts, and the Calvin Klein store in NYC.</p></em><br /><br /><!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" ""> <html><head><meta></head></html> John Pawson's Muse Music Archinect 2012-02-03T15:16:00-05:00 >2012-02-03T15:17:23-05:00 <img src="" width="514" height="348" border="0" title="" alt="" /><em><p>In a way, my influences are eclectic.
