Marc Newson is taking over the Gagosian Shop in London’s historic Burlington Arcade. The shop will feature furniture from Newson’s Cloisonné series exploring the ancient and intricate craft of Chinese enamel, alongside pieces in various forms of glass that push the boundaries of the medium. The takeover coincides with the recently published catalogue documenting Newson’s intensive manufacturing process.
Available pieces include Newson’s Magnolia chair and Cloisonné lounge, as well as a cast glass chair and table from his Murrina series. These particular works have been made using using an artisanal Venetian technique whereby glass rods are heated and fused together before being sliced open to reveal densely patterned cross sections. Also available are personalized iPhone cases from the artists collaboration with cult brand Chaos. The Marc Newson x Chaos collection is inspired by Newson’s enamelling techniques and features motifs such as his signature amoebic “orgone” pattern.
