Cloisonné White and Blue Chair by Marc Newson

Designboom had an interview with Marc at the occasion of an exhibition of his work in Greece. There this Cloisonné White and Blue Chair was exhibited as well. Cloisonné is a process where on a copper project little copper artifacts are filled with colored glass. The object has to be put in an oven several times as each color of glass has its own melting point.

Micarta Chair by Marc Newson

Marc Newson designed the Micarta in 2007 for Gagosian Gallery in New York. New for me is he seemed to think wood.

I also found a Marc Newson Tumblr Dot Com account for what it is worth.
