Philippe Stark gosta de abrir as portas do cérebro humano. Descobrir o seu trabalho é entrar num mundo de imaginação, surpresas e fantasia. Durante mais de três décadas, este criador, designer e arquiteto multifacetado tem feito parte das nossas vidas criando objetos pouco convencionais, cujo propósito é serem bons, antes de serem bonitos.
O designer é um cidadão incansável e rebelde que considera ter o dever de partilhar a sua visão ética e subversiva de um mundo melhor. Sintoniza-se nos nossos sonhos, desenhos e necessidades, algumas vezes antes de nós os descobrirmos, ao transformar o seu trabalho num ato político e cívico que cumpre com amor, poesia e humor.
"I like to open the doors of the human brain", says the designer Philippe Starck. Whenever we discover an object or a place designed by Starck, we enter a world of wall-to-wall imagination, surprises and fabulous fantasy. For more than three decades, this unique and multifarious creator, designer and architect has been a part of our daily lives by creating unconventional objects, whose purpose is to be "good" before being beautiful. Through Philippe Starck’s concept of "democratic design" – increase the quality objects at lower prices so that more people can enjoy the best – he was a lone voice at a time when design was turned exclusively towards an elite. Philippe Starck believed in the green long before ecology became fashionable, out of respect for the planet's future. He recently developed the revolutionary concept of "democratic ecology" by creating affordable wind turbines for the home, soon to be followed by solar-powered boats and hydrogen cars. Starck is a tireless and rebellious citizen of the world who considers it his duty to share his ethical and subversive vision of a fairer world. He stays tuned in to our dreams, desires and needs - sometimes before we get there ourselves - by making his work a politicaland civic act which he accomplishes with love, poetry and humour.
