The Genius of Marc Newson – Projects and Inspirations

Marc Newson needs little introduction. Described as the most influential designer of his generation, his work has carved a mark in a wide range of disciplines and industries.

A native Australian, Newson spent a great deal of his youth travelling in Europe and Asia, experimenting with furniture design. After graduating from university, the young designer was awarded a grant from the Australian Crafts Council with which he staged his first exhibition, where he featured the  Lockheed Lounge – a piece that has now, twenty years later, has set three consecutive world records at auction.

His international career keep him travelling regularly, with clients in manufacturing and technology, fashion, and luxury goods sectors. Many of his designs have been a runaway success for his clients and have achieved the status of modern design icons. In addition to his core business, Newson also founded and runs a number of successful companies, including a Swiss watch brand – Ike Geneve – and an aerospace design consultancy, having also held senior management positions at client companies.
