Marc Newson has been described as one of the most influential designers of his generation. He has worked across a wide range of disciplines, creating everything from furniture and household objects to bicycles and cars, private and commercial aircraft, yachts, various architectural commissions, and signature sculptural pieces for clients across the globe. His clients include many of the best known and most prestigious brands in the world - from manufacturing and technology to transportation, fashion and the luxury goods sector.

Born in Sydney in 1963, Newson spent much of his childhood travelling in Europe and Asia. He started experimenting with furniture design as a student and with the aid of an Australian Crafts Council grant, staged his first exhibition. By the age of 25, he had created the now famous Lockheed Lounge which has set four world record prices at auction for work created by a living designer.

His work is present in many major museum collections, including the MoMA in New York, London’s Design Museum and the V&A, the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris and the Vitra Design Museum, Germany. He is the only designer represented by Gagosian Gallery.
