Marc Newson Takeover

5 Jul-31 Aug 2022

Overview

Marc Newson is taking over the Gagosian Shop in London’s historic Burlington Arcade. Newson will showcase large-scale cloisonné furniture alongside pieces in various forms of glass that push the boundaries of the medium. Included are his Magnolia chair (2019) and cloisonné lounge, which adapt the ancient craft of Chinese enamel, aluminum surfboards, a cast glass chair, and a table from the Murrina series. The presentation coincides with the launch of a recently published catalogue that documents Newson’s intensive manufacturing process.

Also available are personalized iPhone cases from the artist’s collaboration with cult brand Chaos. The Marc Newson × Chaos collection is inspired by Newson’s enameling techniques and features motifs such as his signature amoebic “orgone” pattern.

At the same time, Gagosian Shop will present dresses by Alaïa—the fashion house founded by designer Azzedine Alaïa (1935–2017)—inspired by Picasso’s Tanagra ceramics. Alaïa was a longtime friend and collaborator of Newson’s.
