There is no one way to describe Philippe Starck - architect, inventor, pop star, philosopher, celebrity, and all of these par excellence, but it is as a designer that he has made such a huge impact on contemporary culture.

As Starck himself says, his designs are "non-products for non-consumers." To him a "non-consumer" is "...an individual who is alert and wary, but also open, creative, enthusiastic, and finally extremely upstream and modern."
