Industrial designer Marc Newson has worked with Beretta on an upcoming shotgun launch, according to Dezeen Magazine.
Newson has designed a version of the double-barrelled 486 Parallelo shotgun for Italian firearms manufacturer Beretta, a company established in 1526.
Newson’s design will be released on 13 November, when the gun is officially unveiled at an event in London.
It will be a version of the existing 486 Parallelo – a 12-gauge side-by-side game gun that features a round body receiver and lavish engravings.
Having joined the Apple team back in September, Newson’s technological brilliance is well known throughout the industry. BusinessWeek touted Newson as an “Australian-born aesthetic guru.”
Beretta’s 486 Parallelo is a side-by-side 12 gauge that comes in at just more than 7 pounds.
It is unknown what Newson has contributed to the redesign.
