At He has worked for clients all over the world from studios in Sydney, Tokyo, Paris, London, New York, and Los Angeles. His work includes designs for major companies such as Alessi, B&BItalia, Capellini, Flos, Iittala and Magis.

The book features Newson's dynamic body of work, combining personal archive of sketches and plans and traces the development of Newson's distinctive visual language, inspired by such idiosyncratic influences as the architecture of Richard Neutra, Aston Martin sports cars and the films of Stanley Kubrick.
