Marc Newson Voronoi Shelf

The Varonoi Shelf by Marc Newson is cut from a single sheet of white Carrara marble. From the designer:
Sometimes I start with the material, sometimes the idea. In this case the materials were the inspiration. I began by identifying materials that I had always been interested in but had never used. Often the context of materials strikes me more than the materials themselves. Context is new, not materials.
Exhibit at the Gagosian Gallery in New York, opening January 25th.

Marc Newson is the Australian designer who first took our breath away with the Lockheed Lounge in 1985.

As for me, still breathless.

This past weekend's New York Times magazine had an article about Marc. You can probably access it online.
