Designed by Marc Newson, the Riga table is a writing desk made of matte lacquered wood (in all of the colours in the collection) with legs in solid beech wood. The feet and knobs are in natural anodized aluminium.
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.
