Philippe Starck is a legend of modern design. He's known for his luxurious hotels and boites around the world -- notably the Peninsula Hotel restaurant in Hong Kong, the Teatron in Mexico, the Hotel Delano in Miami, the Mondrian in Los Angeles, the Asia de Cuba restaurant in New York -- designing the total environment from layout to furniture to linens.

But he has made perhaps his most permanent mark on design through his bold reworkings of everyday objects. In reimagining and rethinking the quotidian, he has produced some of the iconic shapes of the 20th century, including his leggy chrome juice squeezer , the reimagined Emeco aluminum chairs, and the witty Louis Ghost polycarbonate fauteuil.

When Starck turns his bold vision toward a chair, a shoe, a toothbrush, it's clear he thinks deeper than the glossy surface. Info source:www.ted.com

 

Was born in paris in 1949.
inspired by his father, who worked as an aircraft designer
starck spent his childhood under his father's drawing boards,
sawing, cutting, gluing, and sanding, dismantling bikes,
motorcycles and other objects.
from the mid-sixties, starck attended the ecole nissim de camondo
in paris, and he set up his first company in 1968 to produce
inflatable objects. in the 1970s he fitted out the paris night-clubs
la main bleue (1976) and les bains-douches (1978).
french president francois mitterand assigned him to decorate a
suite in the elysée palace in paris in 1982.
since then he has reached a phenomenal international
reputation in hotel interiors, furniture design and domestic products.
in 1984 he designed the interior of the café costes in paris,
along with those of other establishments, such as the manin in
tokyo (1985) and teatriz in madrid (1990).
he has also designed a number of private dwelling houses and
apartment blocks, commercial premises. in paris a whole street block,
la rue starck, is going up to his designs (1991).
philippe starck may be the most famous and prolific designer alive.
his desire for transgretion and challenge, of aesthetic and cultural
provocation made him change our lamps, door handles, cutlery,
kettles, vases, clocks, scooters, motorcycles, desks, beds, taps,
toothbrushes, baths, toilets… in short, our whole life.
