Philippe Starck constantly seeks ways to bring love and happiness into our lives with objects and environments that light up the everyday.
For more than 30 years, this unconventional designer has poured the same enthusiasm into caring for his tribe and "making poetic products".
Philippe Starck made several hotels and restaurants all around the world.
His architectural monsters sprung up around Japan to make him the leading exponent of expressionist architecture.
When Philippe Starck designs a hotel or restaurant, he pays more attention to what isn't there than what is, creating spaces which visitors, the "actors" of these places, will then inhabit and transform.
Philippe Starck went out on a limb very early on when he declared his intention to "give the best to as many people as possible," a lone voice when design was turned exclusively towards an elite. He imagined plastic furniture for leading Italian manufacturers.
Philippe Starck is present in our everyday with objects that are "good" before they are beautiful, intelligent objects that are filled with humanity.
Described by the international press as "a crazy genius, revolutionary, subversive, visionary," Philippe Starck never tires of finding ways to transform our daily lives by sublimating our roots and the very wellspring of our being. The world's museums make no mistake: New York, Munich, London, Chicago, Kyoto, Barcelona and Paris amongst others have all shown his work as that of a master.
Philippe Starck has received numerous accolades in France, the United States and Italy, including Designer of the Year, the Grand Prix for Industrial Design, the Design Oscar, Chevalier de l’Ordre National de la Légion d’Honneur and the Compasso d’Oro, among many others.
