“Sometimes I start with the material, sometimes the idea. In this case the materials were the inspiration. Often the context of materials strikes me more than the materials themselves. Context is new, not materials.” Marc Newson

Newson approaches design as an experimental exercise in extreme structures and advanced technologies, combined with a highly tactile and exacting exploration of materials, processes, and skills. He explores many new frontiers, transposing materials and techniques from one context to another to create complex, sometimes baffling forms. Recently he has reached new heights of complexity and sophistication with several bodies of related work. Each work is fashioned in a single, seamless piece from various materials, for example the ribbon-like Extruded Tables, Extruded Chairs, and the web-like Voronoi Shelf are each cut from a single block of Carrara marble.
