Made to seem like its timekeeping mechanism is floating in the air, the goal of the timepiece was all about lightness, transparency and simplicity. Housing that gorgeous JLC mechanism is an equally gorgeous crystal casing, adding to that "barely there" illusion.

If that name rings a bell, that's because Ive is the chief design officer for Apple. To create this one-of-a-king camera, the designer duo had to fully immerse themselves in the camera's mechanics in order to strip away the unncessary and let shine its functionality. This is one tool that not only looks handsome in photos but can also take great ones too.

What resulted is an innovative new range of rolling trunks, utilising aluminum, leather, mongram canvas, polypropylene and textile as key materials. It isn't only beautifully Louis Vuitton, it's also extremely functional and stylish.

Newson, choosing to express the cognac's iconic decorative motifs, grapes and vines, in a corrugated relief, making for a bold yet understated design that stands out.

The entire collection features a fountain pen, ballpen, rollerball, stylus pen and an artfineliner.

However, in 2002 Newson redesigned the chairs in plastic for an Italian company called Magis, breathing new life into this funky furniture. Wouldn't this brighten up your house?

The device created is part draught pouring machine and part cooler, coming from a partnership between Heineken and Krups. The device allowed drinkers to have an incredibly chilled perfect pour beer at home, a luxury in its own right.

For their 100th anniversary, Japanese seasoning brand Ajinomoto asked Newson to create a new recognisable design to be associated with them. Simple, rounded and looking like the iconic Mt Fuji in the distance, these salt shakers have a design that speaks volumes about its Japanese origin.

Like most of his designs, we enjoy the simple yet polished aesthetics of this creation that features minimal interruptions, allowing a viewer to appreciate form and function altogether. It's as if it was made for both kids and adults.

For his design, Newson used a combination of leather and Nike's flyknit, making for what the Australian designer says is a "wonderful cultural juxtaposition of skills and things". A little bit urban and a little bit sporty, it's a shoe that you can and would want to use daily. You can check out all of Marc Newson's past projects on his official website.
