Marc Newson

This Australian designer first came to my attention late last year when he collaborated with Nike on the Zvezdochka shoe. Since then I've taken a closer look at his work and want to share it with the world! Thanks to his recent exhibition at London's Design Museum I was given the chance to see many of his designs up-close and personal. These included: his 1986 Lockheed Lounge, his 1999/2000 concept car for Ford, the Kelvin 40 2004 concept jet and of course the Zvezdochka.

'Marc Newson is one of the most accomplished and influential designers of his generation. At 41, he has already worked across a wide range of disciplines to create everything from chairs, household objects, a bicycle and a concept car to restaurants, a recording studio and interiors of private and commercial jets, for clients based in Europe, North America, Asia and Australia.

In 1997, Newson moved to London, where he set up Marc Newson Ltd as a larger studio capable of tackling more ambitious industrial projects. He has since designed mass manufactured glassware for Iittala, kitchen and bathroom accessories for Alessi, furniture and household objects for Magis and B&B Italia, Idée and Dupont Corian. Newson has also designed vehicles such as a bicycles, the MN01, for Denmark's Biomega, a concept car, the 021C for Ford, and the interiors of a Falcon 900B private jet. In 2002-3 he designed the Lever House Restaurant in the famous Lever House Building in Manhattan, New York, a Business Class seat, Skybed for Qantas, a cookware range for Tefal and a bathroom range, The Newson Suite, for Ideal Standard. He opened a second studio in Paris

In 2004, new works include Talby, a mobile telephone for Japan's KDDI, the uniforms worn by the Australian Olympic team designed in collaboration with Richard Allan and worn at the 2004 Athens Olympic Games, a shoe, Zvezdochka, for Nike, a range of clothing for G-Star, luggage for Samsonite, and aircraft interiors for the new A380 fleet for Qantas.'
