Philippe Starck born on January 18, 1949 in Paris, is considered the number one of European designers, as well as carrying out activities as an architect, world-renowned creator with a multifaceted inventiveness, he is always focused on the essential, his vision: that creation whatever form it takes, it must improve the lives of as many people as possible.
A home furnishing object or designed by Starck is light, cheap in matter and energy from production to consumption, from packaging to transport. Starck has the consciousness of being different, of having "broken through" out of a pure need to express himself. Its characteristics are the taste of play and fun; loves to marvel and amaze others, also through his architectural works.


This philosophy has made him one of the pioneers and central figures of the concept of "democratic design". Employing his prolific work in all sectors, from everyday products (furniture, juicers, electric bicycles, a single wind turbine), to architecture (hotels, restaurants that aspire to be stimulating places) and naval and space engineering (mega yacht, housing module for private space tourism), continually pushes the boundaries and needs of design, becoming one of the most visionary and renowned creators of the international contemporary scene. Philippe Starck and his wife, Jasmine, spend most of their time on the plane or in "the middle of nowhere". In the industrial design and home furnishings sector Philippe Starck collaborates or has collaborated with Italian and foreign companies such as Fiam, Kartel, B&B Italia, Aprilia, Kartell, Cassina, Flos, Driade, Alessi, Aprilia, Emeco, Magis, Cerruti Baleri and many others companies. From the collaboration with Fiam Italia, the Caadre Wall Mirror is a striking example of the essentiality as a design philosophy that distinguishes Starck.

"... my father was an inventor, he designed planes and the only legacy he left me was not a large sum of money, as generally happens with aviation - for me it was the opposite - but he left me the idea that one of the most beautiful jobs you can do is a creative one. With the creation you can do an inner search and work on yourself. And by creating planes, you taught me some precious things: to make a plane fly you have to create it , but in order not to drop it you have to be strict ".
