In January 2019, Gagosian presented new works by Marc Newson. It was Marc’s first exhibition of limited-edition furniture pieces in more than a decade.

Revisiting his roots as a jeweller and silversmith, in this exhibition Marc explored increasingly rare decorative techniques at an unconventionally large, even unprecedented, scale. For the Murrina works (2017), Marc utilises an intricate classical glass-making technique to create streamlined desks, tables, and consoles. Their sloping and bevelled planes are unified beneath pulsing fields of repeated cell-like spots on vivid coloured grounds, made by fusing glass rods together and then slicing them to reveal patterned cross-sections.
