Designer of the year at Design Miami:
Each Design Miami/ Designer of the Year is asked to create a permanent, site-specific installation for the Miami Design District, home base to Design Miami.
Marc has chosen to undertake a large-scale project for the local Design and Architecture Senior High, where a 100-foot-long fence separating the school's courtyard from the street leaves much to be desired - especially in a neighborhood dedicated to design. Marc is currently developing an exciting new fence design, which will inspire the budding designers attending the school and enhance the community for decades to come. The completed installation will be unveiled at Design Miami 2007.
During Design Miami, some limited piecies of Newson were shown by galleries.
The chop top table, inspired by the vent horizon table, was proposed by Galerie Kréo, Paris. All the twelve tables were sold in 20 minutes at the price of $120,000.
A lockheed was proposed by Sebastian + Barquet at the price of $2,500,000, but didn't sell.
Exhibition at the Gagosian Gallery:
