Former Apple design chief Jony Ive is set to be the guest editor for an upcoming issue of the "How to Spend It" magazine, a luxury lifestyle publication put out by the Financial Times.

The issue, which is slated for publication on Saturday, May 7, will see Ive select content and contributors to showcase the chosen theme of "making and creating."

"Long an obsession of mine, it has always struck me that the process of creating and making finds expression in so many different forms. This is a rather personal issue of 'How To Spend It,' and I have gathered together many of the people, objects and places that I love," Ive said.

Contributors will include famous cellist Yo-Yo Ma, singer-songwriter Lily Allen, and award-winning trombonist and trumpeter Trombone Shorty.

The magazine is also set to include a special feature about Ive and longtime collaborator Marc Newson. Its cover shot will be of Ive and his father Michael.

Ive worked for decades at Apple and was responsible for leading design work on some of the company's most iconic products, including the iPhone, because of frustration and culture changes at the Cupertino tech giant — to work on his own design projects.
