Marc Newson’s Lockheed Lounge sets new record at auction

The Lockheed Lounge by Australian designer Marc Newson has retained its title as the world’s most expensive design object, after selling for more than £2 million.

Newson’s riveted aluminium and fiberglass chaise longue fetched £2,434,500 during a sale at auction house Phillips in London last night.

This surpasses the £1.4 million raised by a prototype of the design when sold by the same auctioneers in 2010, when it first became the most expensive object sold by a living designer.

We are proud to have set, yet again, the auction record for Marc Newson, one of the most influential designers of the last quarter century, said Alexander Payne, worldwide head of design at Phillips — via redwolf.newsvine.com
