Since the establishment of his studio, Ubik, in 1979, Philippe Starck has conceived more than 10,000 projects, and every single one of them has had the same principle: they must be at the disposal of the users. The object has to be "fair" and "to provide a service" - as functional as emotional. Starck embodies a democratic way of designing by asking himself: Why does this object deserve to be? He's a committed creator that belongs to an ever-changing contemporary world. That is why, for example, he has been a long-time defender of an ecological creative process. This catalogue, which follows the exhibition held at the Centre Pompidou Malaga, brings us right to the core of Starck's creative process - drawings, sketches, researches, and, of course, his most iconic objects.
