Marc Newson, a Sydney native, is a global design superstar, creating furniture, interiors, suitcases, shoes, watches, yachts, cars, jets, and many other projects. His particular 21st Century version of space age, jet-setting modernism is well-represented in his Apollo Torch design of 1997. A flashlight machined from a solid lump of aluminium; the grooves around the head of the torch recall those of the Blend ashtray.
