Whether it’s a toothbrush, an airplane or a chair, it’s always the same philosophy: to think about what the user will gain.
„What is humanity lacking? Certainly not more objects… Because he is acutely aware of this and because he places the individual at the centre of his work, thinking solely of the user’s benefits, Philippe Starck likes saying he wasn’t born to make tables and lamps, but that the first stroke of his pencil is his only tool – weapon even – to express and introduce original alternatives into our daily routines.“
