Australian by birth, he spent his childhood travelling around Europe and Asia before studying jewellery and sculpture in his native city, Sydney. He began experimenting with furniture design during his student days and after graduating, had the opportunity to exhibit his creations at Sydney’s Roslyn Oxley Gallery. Later, he spent some years in Tokyo.
Marc Newson is one of the most important and influential designers of his generation. He has been active in a wide range of disciplines, designed all types of objects and spaces (chairs, homeware, recording studies, interiors for private and commercial aeroplanes, restaurants, etc.) in Europe, North America, Asia and Australia.
In the 1990s he set up his Paris studio, where he designed objects (lighting equipment, furniture, clocks, etc.), restaurants and even a recording studio. In 1997 he moved to London, where he created Marc Newson Ltd, a studio equipped to deal with the most ambitious industrial projects. Since then, he has created objects in glass, kitchens and bathroom accessories, furniture, decorative items and home lighting, etc.
Other designs have included bicycles, vehicle prototypes, aeroplane seats and interiors, sets of kitchen utensils, bathrooms. His most recent work ranges from models for mobile telephones, shoes, collections of clothes, to luggage.
Simplicity and comfort are the two adjectives that best describe Newson’s design on the sixth floor. In his opinion, a hotel room should entice guests to relax from the very start. Everything should be accessible and no element should overshadow the others. “I have spent a great deal of time in hotel rooms all over the world, and this is a great chance to improve all the things that have always bothered me about hotels”.
Marc Newson has gone for lacquered wood in shiny red for the walls of the lobby and the corridor. The floor alternates wool carpet and marble. The idea is to envelop guests in an atmosphere that is at once suggestive and modern, and relaxed, where nothing stands out above anything else.
In the rooms, Newson combines mostly grey and white. The bed is a sort of island, an oasis isolated from the rest of elements, also designed by the architect. The bed is surrounded by leather, used for the headboard and the bed side tables. Everything is easy, at reach. This is the advantage of his design.
