Ever since College, I have always had a soft spot for a jeweler/sculptor turned industrial designer. The fact that he attended the same college probably plays a part in it. I must say, his designs were all outstanding. He did some work for alessi for a while. His name is Marc Newson.
My most favorite piece of his is the sleek aluminium Lockheed lounge. He has done so many interesting pieces that it is always difficult to choose only one.
I would love to have it in the studio! I gather that a collector already owns it...
It was one of the early pieces. I have always treasured this "lounge" and have always wanted it for my studio.
