Marc Newson

Regular price Regular price $150

This book was published on the occasion of Marc Newson at Gagosian, West 21st Street, New York—an exhibition of limited-edition furniture pieces by the artist. Revisiting his roots as a jeweler and silversmith, in these works Newson explores increasingly rare decorative techniques at an unconventionally large, even unprecedented scale in the creation of desks, tables, consoles, chairs, surfboards, and a sword. The works are made using such diverse methods as glass casting; the Venetian technique of murrine, in which disks made from cross sections of colored glass rods are fused into sheets that are shaped and subsequently fired again; and Chinese cloisonné, an enameling process that dates back to the thirteenth or fourteenth century.

The catalogue highlights twenty-eight pieces with extensive photography and contains a comprehensive section dedicated to the processes involved in making the works—reproducing preliminary sketches, computer-aided designs, visual programming maps, and behind-the-scenes photographs of the works in progress at the foundries—that provides insight into the techniques Newson employed. It also includes a new essay by Nicholas Foulkes and installation photography of the exhibition.
