In just a few days Taschen will release their much anticipated retrospective of multi-talented designer, Marc Newson. A true jack of all trades, Newson has designed everything from “mass produced objects to limited edition furniture and fashion,” including chairs, restaurants, boutiques, cars, planes – even a spaceship. Written by Alison Castle, who also penned Taschen’s two sold out Stanley Kubrick collections as well as “Linda McCartney’: Life in Photographs,” she and contributing authors Laszlo Adams, Nicholas Foulkes, Louise Neri, and Alice Rawsthorn wax verbose in this 610-page encyclopedic tour through all of Newson’s works to date, “from early pieces such as Lockheed Lounge (which holds the world record for the highest price paid for a piece of designer furniture, at over two million dollars) through designs of household objects and more recent, large scale projects such as the interior of Qantas’s A380 and the Aquariva boat.”
Available in two editions, the $1,000 edition (hardcover in slipcase) and the $6,000 Art Edition (hardcover with leather inlay in a Micarta slipcase), which is limited to 100 numbered and signed copies.
