Instantly recognizable sculptural lines define the Glass Newson Vase collection, by Marc Newson. A new edition of a timeless classic, designed using ceramic in the ‘90s, this vase echoes the sinuous form of the Orgone lounge chair, by Newson – a detail that will not go unnoticed by afficionados attentive to the evolution of the project.
Made of paste-coloured transparent Murano glass, mouth-blown into a mould, the Glass Newson Vase is available in amethyst, emerald green and air force blue: a highly contemporary palette, studied to emphasize the curved shape of the design.
Each glass vase in the Glass Newton Vase collection is one-of-a-kind, the fruit of the ancient art of master glassmakers. Any irregularities in the colour or thickness of the glass, or any tiny air bubbles, are due to the artisanal workmanship, and likewise should be considered a valuable addition.
Born in Australia in 1963, Marc Newson worked around the world, first in Tokyo, than in Paris, finally in London where, with Benjamin de Haan, he opened Marc Newson Ltd. in 1997. A wide number of his projects are cultural symbols represented by the best museums all over the world, for example the Moma of New York and the Vitra Museum. He is the designer who best entered the pop culture scene: his pieces have been used by Madonna in her videos and in the Austin Powers films.
