Wood Chair- made in 1988: Marc Newson’s creations are so different and breathtaking that it is hard to choose the favourite but Wood chair has certainly grabbed my attention. It is one of my favourite from his collection. The wood chair is an oversized lounge chair made of bent natural beech heartwood. The chair looks simple yet complex. The chair is bent to form a ‘double curve’ or ‘alpha shapes’ making it look really complex and intricate.

The use of light colour makes it look simple and classy grabbing your attention and making you want to sit on it and relax. Marc Newson’s each works are very creative and original. The ‘Lockheed Lounge’ is an extraordinary piece which has become one of Newson’s signature pieces and a 20th century design icon.

He has captured the shape of embryos and turned it into a comfortable and stylish chair.
