Marc Newson

Marc Andrew Newson CBE (b. 1963) of Sydney, Australia (now based in London), is a successful industrial designer who works in aircraft design, product design, furniture design, jewelry, and clothing. He incorporates a design style known as biomorphism, which uses smooth flowing lines, translucency, transparency, and tends to have an absence of sharp edges. In 1984, Newson graduated from the Sydney College of the Arts in jewelry and sculpture. In 1986 he was awarded a grant from the Australian Crafts Council and staged a first exhibition featuring the Lockheed Lounge. The following year he moved to Tokyo, where he lived and worked until he moved to Paris in 1991 and set up a studio.
The Magis company was founded in 1976 and had their first success in 1984 with “Step,” a ladder that was influential and crossed over into the designer furniture market from the hardware stores. They had two more huge successes in 1994 with Jasper Morrison’s “Bottle” and the “Lyra” stool from the Italia Group, their bestseller. Two years later, the “Bombo” stool designed by Stefano Giovannoni would gain enormous success and cultivate an imitable style. Once the company gained momentum, they never slowed and would go on to produce Jasper Morrison’s technologically advanced “Air-Chair,” Michael Young’s “Dog House,” Konstantin Grcic’s “Chair One,” the “Me Too” line of children’s objects and furniture, and the “Striped” family from the Bouroullec brothers.
