From mass-produced objects to limited-edition furniture to unique superworks, designer Marc Newson has blurred boundaries, charted new territory and risen to the top of his field in the process. This overview of his career includes all of his major and minor works, with extensive quotes from the designer himself woven into the descriptions.

This book about Marc Newson's design career can, if you are ambitious enough, read like a catalog of how to live. Imagine waking up in the morning, taking a bath, drying your hair, getting dressed, putting on your glasses, putting on perfume on yourself, sitting down to eat a breakfast of tea with eggs and toast, checking your watch, grabbing your suitcase, driving to the airport, catching a flight and sailing away on a luxury yacht. What is remarkable about this scenario, apart from the opulence, is that everything in it could be a Newson design: the bed, the bathtub, the hair dryer, clothes, shoes, glasses, perfume bottle, kettle, teapot, toaster, frying pan, spatula, cooktop, plates, utensils, watch, chair, table, lights, suitcase, car, plane and even the yacht.

No project is too small or too big for Newson, and his career is a testament to what one person with boundless ambition, ingenuity, curiosity and versatility can achieve. From mass-produced objects to limited-edition furniture to unique superworks, Newson has blurred boundaries, charted new territory and risen to the top of his field in the process. To call the contributions Newson has made to the design world groundbreaking and influential is hardly adequate - more accurately, his work is now the benchmark by which the work of other designers must inevitably be compared.

This encyclopedic book covers all of Newson's works to date, beginning with the first foundational pieces such as the Pod of Drawers and the Lockheed Lounge (which broke the world record for the highest price paid for a piece of furniture by a living designer), in encyclopedic style, arranged chronologically by category: Objects, Furniture, Interiors, Transportation, and Jewelry & Watches. Each description discusses the story behind and the making of the piece and is liberally provided with quotes from the designer himself. The book is completed by a visual index of Newson's complete works, a chronology of his life, a bibliography and his exhibition history.
