Design Marc Newson is joining Apple as part of Jonathan Ive's design team, reports Vanity Fair.

Newson, who will continue to be based in the United Kingdom, will be an employee of Apple, and will be frequently traveling to the company’s Cupertino, California, headquarters. The industrial designer has had his work archived by MoMA, and has been commissioned by Ford, Nike, and Qantas Airways, among others.

“Marc is without question one of the most influential designers of this generation,” Jonathan Ive told VF Daily. “He is extraordinarily talented. We are particularly excited to formalize our collaboration as we enjoy working together so much and have found our partnership so effective.”

“I’m full of admiration and respect for the extraordinary design work that has been produced by Jony and the team at Apple,” Newson said. “My close friendship with Jony has not only given me a unique insight into that process, but the opportunity to work together with him and the people that have been responsible. I am enormously proud to join them.”

The two designers have been friends for years. They both worked together to create items for the Sotheby's (RED) charity auction. Check out a video interview with the two here.
