In this movie Dezeen filmed with industrial designer Marc Newson to coincide with the publication of a major book on his work by Taschen, he talks about the early days of his career when he made everything himself - including one of his most famous pieces of work, the Lockheed Lounge chaise longue.

The fibreglass and aluminium chaise featured in his first exhibition in 1986 and went on to sell for a record £1.1 million at auction in 2009.

Flicking through a proof of the new book entitled Marc Newson - Works, Newson notes that he was forced to make pieces like the Lockheed Lounge as one-offs and limited editions in the early days simply because he couldn't manage to make any more of them by hand, while later editions like his marble pieces for the Gagosian Gallery were restricted to suit the design-art market.

He also describes interior design projects he has worked on such as the Azzedine Alaia Boutique in Paris, as well as his work with Qantas airlines.

Marc Newson - Works is published by Taschen.
