Furniture Design

Newson, Marc (1963)

The London-based Australian designer is one of the most influential and prolific actors of contemporary design. His colourful creations incorporate the concept of biomorphism, involving rounded soft shapes inspired from natural forms. The designer therefore imagines playful yet technically rigorous pieces that evoke a futuristic aesthetic. Marc Newson believes that 'if you can just be yourself, then you have to be original because there's no one like you.'
