Happy birthday Philippe Starck!
Known as a designer who approaches design in a subversive, intelligent and always interesting way, his objects surprise and delight even as they transgress boundaries and subvert expectations.
In 2012, Starck brought us the Broom Chair, perhaps one of the most passionate design stories of modern time. "Imagine a guy who takes a humble broom and starts to clean the workshop, and with this dust he makes new magic," says Starck of his famed Broom Chair.
Today we celebrate this inspiring designer. Cheers, Philippe. We know you are doing something fabulous for your birthday!
