Marc Newson quotes

I have a lot of objects in my space, little things, reminders, memories.

I don't have any furniture of mine in my room.

I don't like to make my life like a book.

I made some salt and pepper shakers a while back and waited three years for them to come.

I was much more interested in making things than in designing them.

I was sort of open to do anything, I was free.

I'd love to be approached to do ordinary things more.

Now I'm doing more snowboarding but I have to get back into surfing again.

So if I design it and then go away, it's still living somewhere and it still exists by itself without me.

You know some people say that you make watches or perfume bottles, it's all different things.

So if I want to buy a light in a shop and I don't find a light that I like, I think to myself what would I like? What would I like to buy? Then I started to imagine and design it for myself a lot of the time.

If you can just be yourself, then you have to be original because there's no one like you.

To create well I have to be in a good mood, happy and cool.

But to me, to be original is to be yourself.

Yeah, my dream would be to work for 6 months and then have 6 months to play, just snowboarding, surfing, and going to cool places to listen and be alone and kinda chill out.

And where I grew up in Australia, surfing was a part of culture.

I'm interested in youth culture and popular culture.

Design schools are good, I guess, sometimes I visit schools, but they are very very limiting.

I never buy magazines, I never even buy books.

I think it's really important to design things with a kind of personality.
