Meet Philippe Starck

On the 22nd of September, our students had the chance to meet the french architect. Born in Paris in 1949, Philippe Starck studied at the French capital’s Ecole Nissim de Camondo. He comes under the spotlight starting from the 1980s, as the first actual star-designer in the history of his profession.

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 has put his ingenious stamp on more than 10,000 designs.
