G-Star, Taschen, Hop Aboard the Marc Newson Train

+

Calling Marc Newson an industrial designer is a gross understatement. The Australian visionary has bestowed his unique aesthetic upon furniture, clothing, hotels, restaurants, appliances, timepieces, bicycles, airplane seats, speedboats and even a bonafide spaceship. It’s no wonder quintessential celebrator of everything awesome, Taschen, is releasing an impeccable 610 page ode to the designer sparingly called, Marc Newson: Works.

In addition to providing countless images of Newson’s extensive catalogue of work, the book offers in-depth profiles of some of Newson’s most notable undertakings (including the infamous Lockheed Lounge, which proudly holds the world record for most expensive piece of designer furniture).

To celebrate what is likely to be the star of many a design enthusiast’s coffee table, Taschen hosted a party (which also appropriately highlighted Newson’s most recent G-Star collection, an ongoing collaboration since 2003).
