“Subversive, ethical, ecological, political, fun: this is how I see my duty as a creator.”
Philippe Starck has a mission and a vision: creation, whatever shape it takes, must make life better for the largest number of people possible.
His anticipatory concern for environmental implications, his profound comprehension of contemporary mutations, his enthusiasm for imagining new lifestyles, his determination to change the world, his devotion to a positive reduction, his love of ideas, his desire to defend the intelligence of usefulness - and the usefulness of intelligence - have accompanied one iconic creation after the other… From everyday products such as furniture and lemon squeezers, to revolutionary mega-yachts, micro wind turbines, electric cars, and hotels that aspire to be wondrous, stimulating and intensely vibrant places, Starck never ceases to push the boundaries and criteria of contemporary design.
Inventor, creator, architect, designer, artistic director... Philippe Starck is all of the above, but above all he is a man of honesty, in the purest tradition of the Renaissance artists. More about Philippe Starck
