Philippe Starck

Born in 1949 in France, Philippe Starck is a world renowned architect, interior designer, and industrial designer. His diverse body of work includes designing buildings, interiors, household objects, yachts, wearables, and furniture. As a furniture designer, Starck is consistent in applying an organic, fluid, and whimsical design language into his pieces. Starck is a believer of democratizing design, leading him to create products for the mass market at more affordable price points, without compromising the flamboyant qualities that he is known for. To achieve this, he utilizes unique material combinations such as plastic with aluminum, injection-molded plastics, resins, polyamide, glass with stone, velvet fabric, and so on. He applied this to his works with companies such as Vitra and Alessi. In the 80s, Starck began working with Kartell and embraced the company’s vision of releasing sustainable and contemporary plastic furniture that will stand the test of time. At Kartell, Starck used polycarbonate materials to create the popular Ghost Chairs, Ghost Stools, Ghost Tables, Ero S Chair, among others. As one of the most prolific and distinguished designers in contemporary times, Starck’s works are present in different furniture collections in museums around the world. Design enthusiasts can view them at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, Musee National d’Art Moderne in Paris, Vitra Design Museum in Basel, Musee des Arts Decoratifs in Paris, and the Design Museum in London.
