Founded by Mia Herron Kantor in 2015, Pax has distilled all the sunshine and beach-friendly vibes into functional forms. Aesthetically, its pieces are inspired by the clean, bold lines of the mid-century design movement in California, while glazes channel its natural environment, ‘golden hour’ sunrises and sunsets, the Los Angeleno icons that perpetuated the Light and Space movement and the colour palettes of Georgia O’Keeffe and Josef Albers.
