Marc Newson’s Transport exhibition at the Gagosian Gallery in New York City. The show presents the full range of commissioned vehicles and mobility projects designed by Newson. The types of projects represented is nearly as wide as the scale. At one end is the EADS Astrium Space Plane prototype designed to take tourists into space and at the other is the Zvezdochka trainer for Nike meant to be used by Russian cosmonauts on extended stay at the International Space Station.
The exhibition is also the premier of Newson’s latest project, a speedboat designed for the iconic Italian boat-maker Riva. The limited edition boat (only 22 will be produced) is called the Aquariva and is a mix of Newson’s streamlined style with some of the character of the original Aquariva from the 1960’s.
Also part of the show is the 021c concept car Newson designed for Ford back in 1999. We’ve mentioned before that this vehicle is still striking today and still looks fantastic in person.
