Philippe Starck

Philippe Starck is a French designer. Born 1949, he operates by a simple premise: "everything should be organised elegantly and rigorously, in human relationships as much as in the concluding vision that presides over every creative gesture." First a student at the Ecole Nissim de Camondo in Paris, later as an employee of the Salon de l’Enfance, Stark designed a series of emblematic creations: a flying lamp and a portable neon sign among them. He went on to design legendary Parisian nightclub Les Bains Douches and the Starck Club in Dallas. At the same time he founded his first industrial design company, Starck Product, which he later renamed Ubik after the famous Philip K. Dick novel. 

“Subversive, ethical, ecological, political, fun: this is how I see my duty as a creator." - Philippe Starck
