As believed by a French designer called…

PHILIPPE STARCK

Quote 1: “Design is a dreadful form of expression.”

Quote 2: “Freedom is the only style. That is why I never speak about beauty or beautiful products but “good products”… Nowadays, we have to face so many challenges,…so it is not really a priority to care for beauty. The only way for us is to focus on an ethic and ecological behaviour.”

Quote 3: “Physically it is more a fish than a building, which deviates quite a bit from what is being done today.”

Quote 4: “I’m trying to move towards making objects which are honest, objects for non-consumers, for “modern rebels”. Look, there are already millions of excellent chairs which are very comfortable, lamps which provide light, and so on. Is it necessary to create any more? The only question is: what will it bring to the human being who is going to use it? The urgent thing today is not to create a car or a chair which is more beautiful than another; what is urgent is for us all to fight with every means at our disposal against the fact that something is becoming extinct: love.

Quote 5: “I am just a copier, an impostor. I wait, I read magazines. After a while my brains send me a product… I am my brain’s publisher.”

Quote 6: “Everything I do is a symbol. Everything, has a meaning.”

Quote 7: “The brain, intelligence and creativity. Because these are the real materials – these are the original materials. Before everything, you need a brain. When you know why you do it, when you have an ethical vision, when you try to give a better life to your friends and family, then any type of material is good. But I would always say plastic, because I’m a communist and I always want to make things more and more affordable. I want to reach the maximum I can, for everybody. Only mass-produced plastic objects can do this.”
