Marc Newson Sets World Auction Record at Phillips April Design Sales

Lockheed Lounge Fetches £2,434,500

In the first auctions the category to take place at 30 Berkeley Square, Phillips April Design Sales totalled £8,641,000 (comfortably in the middle of their estimated total of £6.7-9.9m ) selling 87% by value and 77% by lot.

The exhibition attracted three times as many visitors compared to the previous Design auctions in September 2014.

A world auction record was set for Marc Newson and any living designer, with the sale of the Lockheed Lounge. One of 15 examples created, a Lockheed Lounge had not appeared on the auction market since 2010, when it was last sold at Phillips for the previous world record ($2.1m). The lot on April 28th sold to an anonymous telephone bidder.

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. Very strong results were achieved for Shiro Kuramata, Gio Ponti, Diego Giacometti, Jean Royère and Joe Colombo and the sale attracted determined international bidding for the masters of 20th century Design.

Alexander Payne, Worldwide Head of Design, Phillips.
