Biography and curiosity about the French designer

Philippe Starck was born the 18 January of 1949 in Paris.
After graduating from the École Nissim de Camondo in Paris, he immediately contributed to important architectural projects, including that relating to the furnishing of private rooms in President Mitterand's apartment.
From the earliest years, Starck was able to express his natural qualities for design, contributing to numerous important construction projects, a designer who introduced a different idea of ​​the concept of "furnishing accessories".

Style and creative philosophy of Philippe Starck: the "democratic and eco-sustainable" designer

The style of Philippe Starck reflects the idea of ​​a democratic design, and also for this reason he can be considered the artist who, perhaps most of all, contributed to revolutionize French design.

One of his famous creations, an aluminum chair with light and industrial lines rigorously finished by hand, has even been used to reproduce the setting of important cinema films, as well as being used to furnish the famous Frank Gehry villas.

In fact, the designer prefers the use of light and cheap materials, such as aluminum, with the intention of reproducing an industrial design style, characterized by the use of expressionist elements that do not renounce functionality and utility.

The idea of ​​democratic design, which has always represented the philosophy of the artist, makes it possible to reduce the economic costs without sacrificing elegance, with the aim of creating eco-sustainable objects that are accessible to all, that is, economic and respectful of the environment (the intent of Philippe Starck is to create furnishing accessories suitable for everyone, even from an economic point of view).

All of Philippe Starck's creations appear in fact with an attractive and often eccentric design, but always with a touch of humor, irony and sarcasm, characters that can be easily found in the shapes and designs used in his creations (productive furnishing complements of an effect that artist himself defines subversive, ethical, ecological and humorous).
