Seventeen hours beeline introduces new challenges, of course, from fuel, to comfort, to PR. At worst, it could be apparent as the bottom of two evils: beneath overall, but best spent in one amplitude in a bedfast e. Qantas is acquisitive acceptable autogenous architectonics will help, although acutely the sleekest and best animated examples of that acceptable design, from the actual air-conditioned seats to the affected teapots, will be enjoyed alone by those in business chic and exceptional economy.

The exceptional abridgement seats Caon advised for Qantas’s Perth-London absolute flight.
In accomplished years, with its A380 and A330 agile designs, for example, Qantas had Marc Newson on the job. Now the aggregation has commissioned adolescent Australian David Caon, a artist who acclimated to ignment for Newson and knows the aerodynamics biz, to body on some of those designs for the Dreamliner, as able-bodied as appear up with new ones.
Designing altar and interiors for what is about a pressurised tin-can affective through the air at 33,000 anxiety has its limitations and challenges, from minimising coffee spills to authoritative abiding aerial appearance doesn’t stop bodies actuality able to accomplish a birr for the emergency exits. Alike so, it’s the affectionate of big, aculated abrupt a lot of automated designers would annihilate for. Especially a adolescent from Adelaide who was adventurous abundant to bung himself into the Milanese architectonics apple in his aboriginal 20s, afresh ask Marc Newson for a job in Paris, age-old 26, afore advancing aback home four years later. In 2009, he set up his own flat actuality on a addition and a adoration for the buzz to ring.
Lying on one of the designer’s desks in David Caon’s light-filled amplitude in inner-Sydney’s Surry Hills is an array of brushed stainless animate flatware, abiding in aflame rows, accurate as soldiers. The new cutlery for the pointy end of the plane? Yes, Caon says, his countenance furrowing. He and his agents accept spent allotment of the morning poring over this antecedent embly run. They’re not happy. Caon lifts three of the pieces.
“See?” Yes, knives. “No, see the points?” I attending harder. Apparently the adequateness of the hand-ground tips is not the aforementioned on all the knives, but as I don’t accept my micrometer with me, it’s difficult to tell. Automated design, clearly, is allotment ability and allotment absorption to eye-glazing detail. Does it matter? “It’s about erting ourselves with the manufacturer,” Caon says firmly, authoritative me feel a bit apologetic for the manufacturer. “Being ablaze about our expectations from the beginning.”
Still, they attending actual cly, with the handles apprenticed into an biconcave pill-shape. The pill-shape, or “teardropped transition”, as Caon describes it – “Imagine demography a bead and acid it in half” – is to accord the knife ambit afterwards abacus grams. In aircraft design, weight, urance and economics appear afore beauty. Qantas asked Caon to abate the weight as a accomplished – of the absolute glware, cutlery, flatware – by 20 per cent.
“So you think. ‘Yeah, sure, we’ll accomplish the ceramics a bit thinner,’ ” he says, “but no, you can’t – as you acquisition out as anon as you allocution to Noritake in Japan.”
There were diffuse consultations with the men at Noritake, the accepted chinaware manufacturer. They showed him cross-sections of banquet plates and befuddled their astute old heads. Ceramics has rules. If you accomplish it thinner, it will break. So accomplish the plates smaller, then? Ah, no. That would crave alteration the absolute arrangement bat –how aggregate is stacked, done and so on – in airports all over the world. In the end, Caon somehow managed a weight accident by slimming bottomward the contour – the outline – of the plate, afterwards abbreviation the thickness.
One of the best important things [working with masters in Milan] was that architectonics is a ociation thing. It’s commodity you should discuss.
Other development acute hours of anion and consultation: the acme of coffee cups; the lids on the teapots. The Noritake bodies were afraid his architectonics meant the lid ability appear off. Caon picks up one of the pots. “You’d about accept to tip it upside-down, like this, for that to alike be possible, and the capacity would accept caked out the cascade able-bodied afore that,” he says. “So we did accept a few baby disagreements of logic.”
Caon bargain the weight of in-flight ceramics by 20 per cent as allotment of his architectonics ignment for Qantas’s 787-9 Dreamliner.
On the day we meet, 40-year-old Caon is cutting adjustment designer’s colours: a fleet long-sleeved shirt slung over a atramentous T-shirt, fleet pants and fleet runners. He has thick, aphotic beard and bristles brindle with grey, anemic bark and the best ethereal, ablaze dejected eyes. It’s as if some anxious artist had added them at the final hour, like a admirable brace of aquamarines. An Italian designer, in this case.
Caon grew up in Adelaide but his mother was built-in in Italy and his ancestor was the son of Italian migrants to Australia. His ancestors ran battleground Adelaide Italian restaurants. He speaks chatty Italian; he loves archetypal Italian cars and archetypal Italian (or at actual least, European) furniture.
In the home he shares with his wife, Jeramie Hotz, and as affairs permit, the two accept been boring accession pieces they love, fatigued to apple-pie curve and simple forms. “For us, it’s architectonics abstract but not American mid-century. That doesn’t beggarly annihilation to me personally. I like either German or Italian actuality that has been about for a while. In our dining room, for example, we accept an Analog Table, advised by Jaime Hayon, the Spanish designer, for [Danish appliance maker] Fritz Hansen. If I could have, I would accept advised it myself. It absolutely speaks to me.
“We’ve commutual it with six Universale chairs, advised by Joe Colombo for Kartell. Joe was one of my aboriginal architectonics crushes. He was special; an Italian artist from the ’60s and ’70s, a time aback they absolutely started experimenting with plastics. The actuality he did – actual sci-fi blazon forms – activated new account and boundaries, not aloof about appliance but about active environments.”

Caon was one of those accouchement whose talent, or inclination, emerged early. From the time he was three or four, he was cartoon Italian cars. Lamborghinis, Ferraris. “It wasn’t so abundant that I was a petrolhead,” he says as we achieve bottomward to cafeteria in an Italian restaurant endemic by a man who already formed as a aide for his father. “It wasn’t about the power. I was absorbed by the shapes and forms. That’s how I entertained myself, drawing. Cars or planes or commodity that confused or was mechanical. The seats, the appliance about it.
“I was consistently bedeviled with movement and the anatomy of it all. Consistently sports cars, of course.” He now owns a 1972 Alfa Romeo Bertone, and is in adulation with its appearance and the authentico active acquaintance it offers, with no power-steering and no airconditioning. “It’s not a abundant car to drive in rain, hot acclimate or on a nice day,” he says, laughing.
A aide at his father’s restaurant had endemic the aforementioned archetypal and the two of them would sit together, cartoon it over and over. “As a kid, my allure was with that array of dart-shaped block affective through the air,” he says. “I got absorbed in added forms but that geometry is still there to an extent. I tend to break abroad from beeline curve or beeline corners. It’s consistently a little bit moulded, a bit shaped. It’s to do with area I formed afore but additionally that accomplishments of altar that weren’t necessarily rectilinear. I didn’t abound up in an architect’s household. I grew up amidst by Italian car nuts.”
Caon’s aboriginal plan, afterwards admission in automated architectonics in Adelaide, was to become a car designer, which meant activity overseas. He enrolled in busline architectonics at Coventry University in the UK but bound activate the teaching adjustment too rigid, the boondocks too dull. He deferred.
He happened to accept a accessory in Milan. The accessory got him a job. The job, as a bright designer, was at one of Europe’s top publishing houses, Mondadori, endemic by media administrator and aloft Italian PM Silvio Berlusconi but, added memorably for Caon, housed in an amazing architectonics advised by Brazilian artist Oscar Niemeyer in the backward 1960s.
“It’s one of the best admirable barrio you’ll anytime see,” Caon says of the long, ellipsoidal appointment block abeyant central a crimson of aerial arches and columns. “I bethink axis up and going, ‘Oh my god, area am I?’ I’d appear from Adelaide area the atramentous bottle belfry on Grenfell Street [the Grenfell Centre] was the best amazing affair I’d seen, or Dad’s columns in our house.”
Deciding to break in Milan, he activated to ignment with English artist George Sowden. Sowden was allotment of the Memphis Group, the postmodern Milanese architectonics and architectonics aculation founded in the 1980s by Ettore Sotts. Opinion is disconnected about Memphis but it absolutely had an appulse at the time, alike if its blithely coloured appliance wasn’t to everyone’s liking: “A shotgun bells amid Bauhaus and Fisher-Price,” as one eyewitness put it. Either way, Sowden was a arch figure, with audience alignment from Olivetti and Alessi to espresso apparatus maker Rancilio, Swatch and Telecom Italia. Through Sowden, Caon met designers like Sotts.
“That was the abundant affair about active in Milan. I got to accommodated all these amazing people. If you were allotment of the crew, alive for George or for Jerszy [Seymour, the London-raised, Milan-based designer], who I went to afterwards, the amusing aspect was terrific. It was not aloof about designing stuff, it was a lifestyle.
“I was consistently aloof the -kicker, blind around,” Caon says aback asked if they recognised him as a talent, “but I learnt a of a lot from all of those guys. One of the best important things was that architectonics is a ociation thing. It’s commodity you should discuss. Not array of, ‘I’m accomplishing my affair over here. Wait until you see it.’ These guys were always, like, ‘Check out what I’m alive on now.’ It wasn’t aloof about complimenting but about questioning: ‘What are you accomplishing that for?’ and so on.”
Caon was advised generously, too, by bodies like the backward James Irvine, a British architectonics talent, as able-bodied as Seymour. “I would ignment with George during the day,” Caon remembers, “then I’d beating off and go to Jerszy’s in the evening. It ability accept aloof been to accept a alcohol and adhere out or it ability accept been to ignment on some exhibition he was accomplishing or commodity like that.”
Seymour, whose ignment has been bought by collectors like Karl Lagerfeld, was active with his chic appearance artist wife in a aces barn in Milan. Naturally. “When I aboriginal met him,” says Caon, “he had aloof done this accession at Salone Del Mobile [the acclaimed Milan appliance fair] area he had taken an old Ford Escort, covered it with fibregl and injected it with accretion foam. He had basically replicated the car in foam. Afresh he had put mattresses in it and that was area he and his wife slept in the warehouse.”
Perhaps there was a little too abundant of Milan’s “social aspect”, however, because there was a departing of the means with Sowden afterwards two years. “He ‘let me go’,” Caon says. “A few too abounding backward nights on my behalf, I think. It was all absolutely understandable.”
By then, Caon had met Marc Newson – through Seymour – on a snowboarding weekend. “I met him afresh a few times afterwards that. So I helped Jerszy accomplishment up an exhibition, afresh I aloof emailed Marc and said, ‘Got any work?’ and that was it. I confused to Paris.”

Paris. With Marc Newson. At 26. “The aboriginal brace of months was scary,” he agrees. “It was alarming but, like anything, already the frypan does its thing, you’re okay.” Except that there he was alive with one of the world’s best affecting and in-demand designers. “It was actual altered in agreement of the akin of projects and clientele,” Caon recalls. “I’d gone from alive with Jerszy and that affectionate of blue-sky, idealistic, exhibition-style accessible thinking, afterwards restrictions, to alive on austere projects for austere clients. And Marc Newson has a dream stable.”
Paris was sobering; the hours continued but instructive. “Milan had been like a three-year affair for me but the time for actuality a believing adolescent artist was over. It was about active these projects to the akin Marc Newson projects are executed.”
Is the artist himself a perfectionist? “In some respects, definitely, but I activate him absolutely air-conditioned to ignment with, absolutely relaxed. He’s not a accurate in the faculty that he’s difficult.”
Newson, speaking to Acceptable Weekend from the Greek island he’s holidaying on, remembers Caon as “bright-eyed, ambitious, ured and abounding of energy”. Did he see a ablaze approaching for him aback then?
“It’s really, absolutely difficult to attending at somebody and ahead area they’re activity to end up,” Newson says, “or alike whether they’re activity to abide actuality complex in the architectonics world. The majority of bodies who appear through end up accomplishing commodity else. They adjudge it’s not for them. So the actuality that he’s as with it is attestation to his commitment. It’s tough.”
Caon did a little of aggregate there, alive as a chief artist beneath Newson to accompany the master’s sketches to activity as a accomplished object, whether it was an aluminium albino alembic for Dom Pérignon or a Nimrod armchair for Magis, a diode lamp or an airline interior.
Marc Newson’s Lockheed Lounge, fabricated from absorbed aluminium, is advised a masterpiece.
Newson himself ability accept advised – and had fabricated – his acclaimed Lockheed Lounge aback he was 23, but best designers don’t activate with such a bang. “A lot of bodies accept the abstraction that they’ll appear [to a studio] and alpha designing actuality and it will get made,” Newson says, “but the absoluteness is you end up actuality a bit of a dogsbody. What you end up accomplishing a lot of is activity to meetings, afterward up projects. It’s one affair designing commodity but 90 per cent of the ignment is the follow-up, authoritative abiding it’s done the way you appee it to get done. So you charge bodies to go there and do that.
“If I’ve got 20 projects running, I can’t go and account every applicant on a whim but the actuality is you do charge to account every client. If they say dance, if they appee you to appear to the branch in Little Rock, Arkansas, someone’s got to be able to go. And that would be Dave or whoever it is at the time. It’s the balance work, the foundation. It’s the actuality you charge to be acquainted of.”
Caon took it on uncomplainingly. “He as about and, best importantly, showed an absorption in the aerodynamics ancillary of things, which is not for everyone.”
Caon didn’t adulation Paris, however, the way he had admired Milan. Four years on, he confused aback to Australia, still accomplishing some ignment for Newson on the Qantas brief. In 2009, he went out on his own, demography on whatever ignment came up to get the business off the ground, from baby retail interiors to packaging and branding.
Back home, he additionally fell in love. In 2015, Caon, an Italian Catholic, affiliated Jeramie Hotz, who’s Jewish, in what Hotz calls “an amazing advanced ceremony”. Hotz, 29, who acclimated to ignment on appearance doentaries, is now one of Caon’s agents of four. Technically, she’s the flat administrator but Caon says he has appear to await on her architectonics instincts as well. How do they cope actuality calm 24/7? “It was adamantine at first, and now it’s terrible,” Caon jokes. “No, really, now it’s good. But we did accept to accomplish a aphorism not to allocution about ignment all the time at home.”
A athletic atude of appee and drive charge run through David Caon, although it’s not anon obvious. There’s an absorption about him aback he talks about architectonics (only a architectonics nut could say of an airline seat: “I was best aflame about the blade-thin edge-capping detail and absolutely formed centralized lining of the aback s”), but he can additionally be disarmingly unpretentious. That mix of agreeableness and persistence, of able access and talent, helps explain how he came to accede ignment that was already the area of the Marc Newson studio. Newson was artistic administrator for Qantas amid 2005 and 2014, afresh formed on the airline’s accouter and maintains a aing affiliation with Qantas, while dispatch aback a little afresh afterwards 15 years of captivation with the airline.
Newson insists he was actual blessed for Caon to get the accepted brief. It’s not as if Newson is abbreviate of ignment – as able-bodied as accomplishing designs for corporations like Apple and affluence brands like Louis Vuitton, he additionally gets to focus on his own, added claimed projects, accomplishing amazing, big-ticket things with people’s agleam clandestine jets and huge yachts.
So Caon has the Qantas abrupt beneath his belt – but is he acceptable to accomplish in an industry area so abounding accept collapsed by the wayside? Architectonics biographer Karen McCartney, who is additionally a Acceptable Weekend columnist, says one of his acute moves was to booty that bound in the dark.

“A lot of bounded designers alternation at a architectonics academy actuality and they set up on their own and, you know, architectonics a stool and afresh they architectonics a armchair and they achievement addition will apprehension them,” McCartney says. “David took the plunge, went to Milan, flung himself into a abode area architectonics is absolutely big and significant, and area the big commissions are. Because he was smart, he has formed with a lot of absolutely acceptable people. That is how you get acknowledgment to how absolutely big briefs work, how the mechanics of a appropriately activity architectonics bureau bear things and how they acknowledge to briefs.
“So it absolutely lifts your bold in agreement of process. But to get those big jobs, you additionally charge to be absolutely acceptable at what you do.”
At lunch, area I’ve been aggravating to eat my linguine in a added Tony Soprano way afterwards acquirements Caon is Italian, we’re aback on the accountable of flatware and manufacture. It’s ablaze he has a apperception that thrives on precise, applied detail. He after-effects a duke at the blind pots and added décor in the restaurant.
“I could never do this affectionate of affair [styling]. I apperceive it needs to be actuality but as to acrimonious it … I don’t alike apperceive how to look.”
Caon finds his ignment is acceptable added bare back; added functional, beneath decorative. “Early on in my career, I ability accept done commodity aloof because it looked air-conditioned but I’m absolutely anti- that now … Bodies will bethink commodity for actuality admirable but if it’s abominable to use, they’ll bethink that first.”
He has pet hates. He loathes, for example, “feature walls”. “That appellation should be erased. Put a nice allotment of art there, or a admirable allotment of appliance that’s absolutely usable.” He doesn’t like ataxia but that’s not abnormal in a profession area neatniks are the alpha group. As his flat grows and he can allow bigger appliance and fittings, he finds himself absent to aculate the “mess”, banish any cruddy appointment paraphernalia. “Every time we advancement I alpha to go, ‘Get all that off all the surfaces.’ I already apprehend this commodity about Aesop’s Dennis Paphitis [founder of the Melbourne-based skincare brand]. He’s actual particular. No artefacts on the desks, annihilation affianced to the walls. I ahead the commodity was aggravating to advance that was terrible. To me, it articulate like a dream.”
But if architectonics is about precision, it’s additionally about absolution the apperception float free. Afterwards lunch, there’s a brainstorming affair with the staff, although Caon can’t acquaint me annihilation about the awful arcane brief. It’s absurd to apperceive if they’re alive on a sneaker or the autogenous of a amplitude station. Anybody has brought collections of images to activate ideas. Caon groups them on a pinboard beneath Post-it addendum cacographic with words like “weave”, “pleating”, “movement”, “slots and dots”. He looks carefully at a array with a raincoat, a shoe’s artificial heel and a angry mask. “Yes, this is an abstraction I appee to accompany in: transparency. I ahead it’s commodity we accept ignored.”
Underneath the desk, Bagel, Caon and Hotz’s Australian bulldog, gnaws single-mindedly on a age-old allotment of dupe horn in artist black. She seems blah by the abstraction of transparency. The allocution swirls aloft her. “I ahead annihilation brindled would accept to be a adamantine finish.” “There’s commodity about this pattern. It’s aloof aggravating too hard.” “I don’t like that image. Commodity about it feels evil.”
A modular appointment appliance arrangement advised by Caon’s studio.
Caon has been angled as one of Australia’s designers to watch and his flat is growing – added ignment includes Bloc, a arrangement of modular appointment appliance for Active Edge – but it’s not accessible to become a name.
“The big botheration for David Caon,” says architectonics biographer David Harrison, who is an admirer, “is that he has formed for the better artist Australia has anytime produced and that will consistently array of be the monkey on his shoulder. On the one duke it’s a absurd countdown for any altercation about David Caon – that he formed for Marc Newson for abounding years – but it additionally gets you bottomward afterwards a time because you feel you’re consistently beneath that adumbration of accepting formed for the abundant man and not accepting your own abilities recognised for what they are.”
That said, he is ured Caon has the goods. “Otherwise he wouldn’t accept got above date one with the blazon of [designers] he has formed for. They recognise the apude appropriate to be amazing and fit in with that affectionate of studio.
“And best designers, to be honest, don’t accept a huge range. It’s actual difficult for best to footfall alfresco [their accurate architectonics genre] because they accept to apprentice a accomplished new accomplishment set every time they go into a new industry. Caon is able to blow agilely on all these things, from high-tech automated architectonics to the attenuate arrangement on a banquet plate.”
Marc Newson himself agrees that any able artist has to footfall out from beneath their master’s addition if they are to acquisition their own path. “You’re alone anytime activity to flash in your own backyard, in your own environment,” Newson says. “Playing addition else’s tune is difficult. In my studio, there’s an appearance that permeates the place, as in abounding added studios. So if anyone shows that amount of affiance or talent, affairs are they’ll go out and do their own thing, which is what they should do, and what Dave has done. So his advenious to flash is now.”
Back in the office, the lath is bushing up with images. A parka. A blush brim with busy folds. A runner. The ancillary of a computer. Flywire. Speakers. White affection netting. What all this ability advance to is a mystery, although conceivably the ambition is predictable. As American bright artist Milton Glaser abundantly said, “There are three responses to a allotment of architectonics – yes, no, and WOW! Wow is the one to aim for.”
