Marc Newson has designed everything from digital cameras, to iconic aviation-inspired chaise lounges, and to this day, one of my favorite automobile concepts ever. His work continually exhibits a fascinating dichotomy of simple vs. complex, pared down basic forms integrated and executed with the tools of high technology. So it's with great pleasure I discovered a short video touring his London residence...
The Nowness.com's In Residence: Marc Newson gives us a peek inside one of the world's most famous designer's home, and it's every bit the juxtaposition of yesterday, today, and tomorrow I was hoping for (including a very cute moment with his daughter ascending an interior architectural feature):
"The futuristic interior gives way to mock-Victorian details such as a wood-paneled library, one of several flourishes authored by Newson’s wife, fashion stylist Charlotte Stockdale...marble that lines his bathroom, the massive wall of river rocks from Nova Scotia (a “big deal” to achieve, he confesses) and the composite linen that forms his giant dining table."
