A legend in the superyacht industry for penning the designs of Motor Yacht A, Venus and Senses, among others, Philippe Starck also has a long history of collaborations in the lifestyle industry. From high-tech gadgets and Champagne to fashion and interiors, click through to see some of Starck’s best lifestyle projects.
With a strong track record in both yacht and private jet interior design, it seems only a natural progression that Starck should also turn his hand to furniture design. Over the years Starck has worked with some of the finest Italian furniture brands, including creating the iconic Generic chairs for Kartell, the innovative Lady Hio table for Glas Italia and chic sofas and armchairs for the likes of Cassina and Driade. These on-going collaborations are unveiled at Salone del Mobile in Milan each year, becoming a firm highlight of the fair, while Starck's latest collaboration with Kartell was revealed at the London Design Festival in September 2018. Building on his previous collaborations with the brand, the range comprised three chairs designed for both indoor and outdoor use including the Cara chair (pictured) which is unusual for Kartell in its use of upholstery and fabric.
