One of the most popular exhibitions at the Powerhouse Museum during the past year, Marc Newson: design works, will close on Sunday 3 February 2002.
Some of the striking highlights of the exhibition include the sleek, aluminium Lockheed Lounge, the neoprene-clad Embryo chair, the colourful fibreglass lounge, Orgone, a selection of domestic products designed for Alessi, a range of watches, the award-winning Biomega bicycle and interior schemes. Interactive programs, interviews and video clips provide further insight into Newson's life and work and the sources that have inspired his unique creativity.

The exhibition explores Newson’s work from the mid-1980s, following his graduation from the Sydney College of the Arts, to his designs for the Japanese company Idèe through to his European career in Paris, Milan and London. The Design Museum in London is also currently showing an exhibition of Newson's selection for the annual Conran Foundation Collection.
