From Interior Design to Mega Yachts, the Genius of Philipe Starck

There are great interior designers and architects around the world, some are known for being extravagant, creatives, practical, innovative, revolutionaries, and timeless, but when it comes to the use of creative thinking to improve the lives of people, we find Philipe Stark one of the best in the world.

He is well known for his abilities to change visual perceptions while playing with absolute functionality. Every creation harbors a deep sense of responsibility for society and the environment. His designs go from loudspeakers to chandeliers, from motorbikes to mega-yachts, or from everyday objects to beautiful and sensational interior designs. His creations are part of a cult and many of them are also part of museums and exhibitions all over the world.

He believes that creation, no matter the form or shape it takes must improve the lives of as many people as possible, the purpose of being “Good” before being “beautiful.”

 Let’s see why Philipe Starck is considered one of the best interior designers of all time.

Aprilla Moto 6.5 by Philipe Starck

It is quite unusual for a company such as Aprilla to hire a in-house designer to help them launch a radical new model. Philipe Starck is not Italian and never studied in Italy, I say this because Italians are very proud, but that couldn’t stop the French designer and motorbike fanatic to create one of the most remarkable designs in motorcycle history: the Moto 6. 5.
