Marc Andrew Newson CBE (born 20 October 1963) was born in Sydney, Australia. Now based in London, he is a successful, influential industrial designer who works in aircraft design, product design, furniture design, jewellery, and clothing. He incorporates a design style known as biomorphism to his various designs. This style uses smooth flowing lines, translucency, transparency and tends to have an absence of sharp edges. (Wikipedia)
Marc Newson is one of the most accomplished industrial designers of our time. A self-confessed control freak, Newson’s innovative perspective has been applied to everything from cutlery to spaceships. He regularly lends his skills to brands such as Nike, Ford and Qantas. His numerous international accolades include receiving a CBE for services to design and being appointed “Royal Designer for Industry” in the UK. Examples of his work are housed in most major permanent museum collections, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York and one of his earliest pieces, The Lockheed Lounge, holds the record for the world’s highest price paid for a piece of furniture.
