Getting to know Philippe Starck

Philippe Starck is a multi-talent. The French inventor, creator, architect, designer and artistic director has designed nearly everything - from everyday products like toothbrushes, toasters, lemon squeezers, high class restaurant furniture to revolutionary mega yachts.

He describes himself as ‘a Japanese architect, an American art director, a German industrial designer, a French artistic director and an Italian furniture designer’ who tries to always achieve ‘elegance and intelligence’ in his creations. He has designed for international brands like Kartell where he produced the Ghost range including the Louis, Charles, Victoria, LouLou and the Francois mirror. This series combines an antique and sumptuous with an extremely durable and resistant so that the chairs are not only used in private homes but furthermore in bar and restaurant furniture and indeed as outdoor restaurant furniture. Starck has also designed the Bo, Pipe, Ring, Toy and Out / In for Driade, the Eros, Bubble Club, La Marie, Master’s  and  Magic Hole for Kartell and the Zartan and S.S.S.S for Magis.
