    DESIGNER : Philippe Starck MANUFACTURER : VIA The Ara stool, created by Philippe Starck in 1985 for the French publisher Valorisation de l'Innovation dans l'Ameublement, commonly known as VIA, was perceived by its contemporaries as a true innovation. Indeed, this is due to its particular design in skin-molded polyurethane. The shape of this model is also original since it consists of a stool turned over.  This piece is even more specific because the moldings made on its four sides were made from drawings made by Starck's daughter, Ara, when she was three years old. This certainly makes the piece personal to the designer.  The corners show signs of wear.

    DESIGNER : Philippe Starck EDITEUR : Daum The vase Une étrangeté contre un mur made by Philippe Starck is one of a series of pieces made for the Daum crystal factory. First produced in fifty numbered copies, the designer then made small formats in unlimited series like this vase. Founded in 1878 in Nancy by Jean Daum, the Daum crystal factory has collaborated with the great names of Art Nouveau, creating a unique and incomparable heritage.  In this case, Starck's creations are the result of an association between a blown horn called by the designer "strangeness" and a glass plate, associated by cold gluing. Starck has also used these two elements to create other models such as Une étrangeté sous un mur.

    DESIGNER : Philippe Starck Producer : Driade The Royalton chair was designed by Philippe Starck to equip the lobby, the lounges and the restaurant of the Royalton Hotel in New-York as part of a renovation project. It was edited by Driade between 1991 and 1995. Indeed, in 1988, this hotel was completely renovated by the designer at the request of Ian Schrager, director of the chain. For Starck, this major hotel project was "a true act of creation" personal, modern and inventive whose purpose was "to become a classic". The chair is made of mahogany, as most of the New York Hotel. With the choice of this wood, the designer actually wanted to echo the American navy, which has a certain importance in the city's history. In addition to the mahogany that makes up the piece and two of its legs, the third is made of cast aluminum.

Working with wood, glued laminated and solid : a material whose constraints are so well known that they are integrated from the start, at the moment of conception. On some projects, we have to adapt the idea to the needs of the material, it's completely different. ".
