“Apple’s Jony Ive and the renowned industrial designer Marc Newson have paired to design a one-off desk,” Aaron Souppouris report for The Verge.
“Created for charity auction, the (RED) Desk is, in keeping with much of the designers’ back catalogues, machined from solid aluminum,” Souppouris report. “The influence of both designers runs through the piece, although it appears there’s a little more Newson in this desk, just as there was a little more Ive in the Leica.”
Souppouris report, “The form is definitely unique; the tabletop sits atop a pair of sculpted legs like a discarded aircraft wing, leading to a striking initial impact. Get closer to the table and a playful jigsaw-like pattern is revealed on the tabletop.”
