  • Catalogue Essay

    The “Pod of Drawers” with black feet will be included as "MN - 12PODB – 1987," in the forthcoming catalogue raisonné of limited editions by Marc Newson being prepared by Didier Krzentowski of Galerie kreo, Paris.
    Renowned collector and technology entrepreneur Halsey Minor has amassed a highly important collection of design, including seminal limited edition works by Marc Newson. In effect a comprehensive survey of Newson’s career, Mr. Minor’s collection ranges from early studio masterpieces like “Pod of Drawers” (1987) to recent ones like a prototype “Micarta” desk (2006) while stopping at all the key points between. Of his devotion to design, Mr. Minor states, “Collecting is about learning…It is an intense ongoing process of education, and it is my mission to collect only the best.”
