Perhaps the best-known and most influential of contemporary designers, Philippe Starck is driven by his concern for the planet and his vision of a better world. He believes that creation – in whatever form it takes – must improve the lives of as many people as possible. A free spirit, he is renowned for the depth and breadth of this talent.
With over 10,000 creations – completed or yet to come – from speakers to chandeliers, motorcycles to mega-yachts, Starck seems to have done it all. The hotels he has designed have attained a cult-like status. His everyday objects are, in their way, no less spectacular than his fabulous interiors.

He develops a script that takes people away from the monotony of daily life into the world of creativity and imagination.
