The Philippe Starck appreciation thread

This is a thread about one of my favorite designer. Philippe Starck is well famous for several items.

One of his item I like the least the famous Juicy Salif, it's a sleek juicer



An alarm clock for Telefunken



And some stuff from him I've bought and love

The Top Top table (exists in various shape and size)







And the Louis Ghost chairs

The Tip Top is the small version of the Top Top







I'll post pictures of my Top Top with 4 Louis Ghost later so you people can see how these work together

Matthieu,don't forget wide range of PC accessories designed by Starck.

Mouse.


Wifi speakers.


External HDD drives.


Umm,I think there were few more external HDD's designed by him...

Love him or hate him,I personally think that Starck has many interesting ideas and without him world would be lot duller place.

Yeah many people seem to hate his stuffs.

However, they're really good looking and not overdone either.

I've bought his Juicy Salif from a bazaar in Izmir for a really ridiculous price, $8~ I like his designs (Well, except his chairs), but I agree with Concrete Stereo about him being an overrated designer.

hmm, I think his work either looks unspectacular (e.g. the clock) or cheap (e.g. mouse and plastic chairs)..
I don't like it.

I've got 4 Louis Ghost and everyone who's seen them in real fell in love .

These are something that should be seen in real I think, in picture they look a bit crap indeed.

Agreed...the Louis Ghost chairs are genius.....and if Kartell ever stop production of them they will become collectors items.

my mom collects tonnes of Philippe Starck's creations. I remember she was so mad when I used his juicer to make orange juice lol... we also have some of his creations that are not produced anymore hence making it collectible items
