Catalogue Note

“What other designers seldom imitate is his preoccupation with materials and processes. You have to start with an understanding of the material. Often your innovation is just coming up with a new way to use material.” Milled from a solid seamless piece of marble, this meticulously crafted table from Newson’s Extrusion series is a striking example of design that appears at once light and fluid, graceful and dynamic. An experimental exercise in extreme structure, Newson creates a ribbonlike form from a dense material – an unbroken line with no beginning and no end.
