It’s a long time that philippe starck rewrites forms history by using irony as his primary design tool.
After celebrating a certain number of queens and princesses, now he pays homage, with monseigneur collection, to a male entity: a king, a cardinal? The result is a “male design”, straight, aggressive, made of precious wood, absolute metal and quilted leather.
Padded quilted leather structure, with stainless cast steel front legs and armrest and ebonized rear legs (for the sofa).
Philippe Starck is an internationally acclaimed french creator, designer and architect. his profound comprehension of contemporary mutations, his determination to change the world, his anticipatory concern for environmental implications, his love of ideas, his desire to defend the intelligence of usefulness - and the usefulness of intelligence - have accompanied one iconic creation after the other. from everyday products such as furniture and lemon squeezers, to revolutionary mega-yachts, individual windmills, electric bikes or hotels and restaurants that aspire to be wondrous, stimulating and intensely vibrant places. this untiring and rebellious citizen of the world, who considers it his duty to share his ethical and subversive vision of a fairer planet, creates unconventional places and objects whose purpose is to be “good” before being beautiful. philippe starck and his wife, jasmine, mostly live on an airplane or in “middles of nowhere”.
