Philippe Starck has a mission and a vision: creation, whatever shape it takes, must make life better for the largest number of people possible. From everyday products such as furniture and lemon squeezers, to revolutionary mega-yachts, micro wind turbines, electric cars, and hotels that aspire to be wondrous, stimulating and intensely vibrant places, Starck never ceases to push the boundaries and criteria of contemporary design. His technological miracles are vectors of democratic ecology, focused on action and a respect for the future of both humans and nature. He was the first Frenchman to be invited to the legendary TED (Technology, Entertainment & Design) conferences. He is inventor, creator, architect, designer, artistic director... Philippe Starck is all of the above, but above all he is a man of honesty, in the purest tradition of the Renaissance artists.
