Synopsis: Marc Newson is one of the most exciting and influential designers of his generation. At 35, he has worked for clients all over the world from studios in Sydney, Tokyo, Paris, London, New York, and Los Angeles. His work includes designs for major companies such as Alessi, B&BItalia, Capellini, Flos, Iittala and Magis. He designed the Canteen Bar in New York, and is re-designing the Standard Hot bar in Los Angeles. His work is in the permanent collections at San Francisco Museum of Art, the Carnegie Museum in Pittsburgh and at MOMA in New York. He has designed a concept car for the Ford motor company, the 021C, which was launched at the Tokyo Motor Show in fall 1999, and was shown at the Detroit Motor Show in January 2000. The book features Newson's dynamic body of work, combining personal archive of sketches and plans and traces the development of Newson's distinctive visual language, inspired by such idiosyncratic influences as the architecture of Richard Neutra, Aston Martin sports cars and the films of Stanley Kubrick. The book is packaged in its own Newson-designed blow-molded plastic slipcase. 10 x 12", includes approximately 200 full-color images
