On the occasion of its participation as main sponsor of the Italian Pavilion at the Biennale Arte 2022, Sanlorenzo returns to the Casa dei Tre Oci in Venice with the exhibition "A Point of View", in collaboration with the designer and minimalist architect John Pawson. The photographic exhibition will run from 19 April to 26 June in the Sale De Maria, the exhibition space that has already hosted major shows featuring the work of photographers such as Erwitt, Salgado and LaChapelle.

On the strength of its path through art and design, which it continues to consolidate with international collaborations, Sanlorenzo presents in a new light the fascinating work that John Pawson created interpreting the interiors of one of the shipyard's metal superyachts, told through drawings and design sketches presented in the context of the exhibition.

The unmistakable mark of the English architect, characterised by meticulous attention to detail, a fundamental theme for Sanlorenzo, is combined with a rigorous search for simplicity, taking shape in the body of works that make up "A point of view".

Structured in the two sections"Sanlorenzo" and "Home", the exhibition is a chronicle of the designer's distinctive spatial poetry that rests firmly on two cornerstones: the perfect calibration between space, proportion, light and materials, and the search for the essential by omitting the superfluous. When a project can no longer be improved by subtraction, then the goal is achieved.

These defining themes, pursued uninterruptedly for four decades by the photographer, have become the leitmotif of this exhibition, which 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 focused on creating places where the eye is free to travel. It is this freedom of movement that is at the heart of the exhibition I have created with Sanlorenzo". John Pawson

The idea that one can connect 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 "everything is architecture". Each element is therefore treated according to the same meticulous process in the name of a pure and essential study of detail.
