After many years of use, aesthetics of rotational molding should necessarily enter into the second phase of its existence.
It couldn’t be but Starck to get rotational and make such a step. In the outdoor collection out/in Starck with Eugeni Quitllet, proceeds along two paths: the high chair expands sizes, particularly height, transforming the object into a shell as a bulwark. With the sofa he doesn’t look for the “iconic object”, but he rather adopts sophisticated stratagems, usually intended for “home interiors”, for example the inclusion of essential aluminum armrests. are this high chair and this sofa, almost functionalist, creating a “collection”? Certainly, but outside of the ordinary bourgeois aesthetics of the “all coordinated.”
Philippe Starck with Eugeni Quitllet
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”.
