Marc Newson

Australian-born creative, Marc Newson, is considered to be one of the most influential designers of the past few decades. Having originally studied jewellery and sculpture at Sydney College of the Arts, ‘he started experimenting with furniture design as a student and, after graduating in 1984, was awarded a grant from the Australian Crafts Council, and staged an exhibition — featuring the Lockheed Lounge — at the Roslyn Oxley Gallery in Sydney’. Since then he has ‘won commissions from prestigious European manufacturers including Flos for lighting, Cappellini and Moroso for furniture. He formed a joint venture, the Ikepod Watch Company, to manufacture the watches he designed, and produced limited editions of aluminium furniture including the Event Horizon Table and Orgone Chair. During the mid-late 1990s, Newson also designed a series of restaurants for Coast in London, Manchester’s Mash and Air, Osman in Cologne and Canteen in Manhattan, the interior of Syn, a Tokyo recording studio, and a retail system for Belgian designer, Walter Von Beirendonck’s W.&.L.T. street wear label’. He is currently Adjunct Professor in Design at Sydney College of the Arts.
