Philippe Starck, French architect and designer, has signed unquestionably successful projects, such as Juicy Salif lemon squeezer and Steve Jobs yacht.
Starck is a pioneer in the design world, irreverent as any creative terrifying enfant, is among the most famous contemporary designers in the world. It defines its role as "sovereign, ethical, ecological, political, humorous" by providing a clear reading key for every project.
He designed for some of the major brands, from Cassina to Flos, his creativity has led him to explore different design sectors without ever losing the ability to decline a recognizable object style by measurable, sales and best seller success.
Philippe Starck through design is not confined to a formal discourse: every project beyond its shape must be useful and it must improve the lives of as many people as possible.
Imagine new lifestyles and draw objects that fit into these ordinary or extraordinary everyday paintings: Philippe Starck from the useful lemon squeezer in every house at the revolutionary yacht speaks a definite language that is contemporary design.
Philippe Starck has designed architectural and hotel designs that stimulate the senses, but as a designer has been able to draw true icons, there are two examples of the Archimoon Soft desk lamp for Flos and the Ghost chair for Kartell.
Starck is hardly in the conventional categories that help define a designer, its strength remains for every project the ability to find the right solutions to the problems of everyone or just one, true to the style that has turned him into a prominent design exponent contemporary.
With the lemon squeezer designed by Philippe Stark or the yacht for Steve Jobs, it will be difficult not to recognize his design.
