Industrial designer Marc Newson has famously tried his hand at designing pretty much everything. In the second of five movies Dezeen filmed to coincide with the publication of a major book on his work by Taschen, Newson talks us though a range of his projects that takes in mobile phones, knives, beds, clothes, packaging and a surf board so slick it was sold as a sculpture.
In particular he talks about the Talby Mobile Phone that was the best-selling phone in Japan when it launched in 2003 and a custom-made hollow nickel surf board (above) that he created for American surfer Garrett McNamara in 2007, which was exhibited at the Gagosian Gallery and sold at auction as a sculpture for over $200,000.
