Philippe Starck is a French designer best known for his New Design aesthetic. His designs range from architecture, interiors and mass produced consumer goods.
A true inspiration
Starck is a true inspiration: "98% of people’s lives are grey. Marketing tells us we are consumers, Television tells us we are observers. That we are nothing and no-one. Surrealism is a wake up machine, that you do exist, everyone of you, and I am just an Alarm Clock. Surrealism is poetry for modern day consumerism.” (Philippe Starck) Quotation from "Imagine... It’s the Surreal Thing" on BBC1. May 28th 2007

Philippe Starck is the ultimate designer. He can (and he does!) design everything, from a toothbrush to a boat. His recent project - also known as Philippe Starck Downtown - is a masterpiece! He combines minimalism with technology and style.

This year, Santa brought me an Oregon Scientific alarm clock, beautifully designed by Philippe Starck, that "projects" the current time on my bedroom's ceiling. Wow ! I never would have thought I (or my wife) could fall in love with an alarm clock ... (would you ?). Having the time always in sight, without having to push on a button, turn around or make the slightest movement ... is un-replaceable. Philippe Starck and Oregon Scientific have changed my life, I will never change my alarm clock again.
