Philippe Starck declares in Casa Vogue, “my concept of democratic design is based on the following idea: to give quality pieces at accessible prices to the largest number of people. To lower the price while increasing the quality. It’s my political consciousness.” In 1969 Starck designed an inflatable structure, based on the idea of materiality, reflecting his early interest in living spaces. Not long afterwards, Pierre Cardin, seduced by the iconoclastic design, offered him the job of artistic director at his publishing house. In 1970, Philippe Starck founded his first industrial design company, Starck Product, which he later renamed Ubik after the famous Philip K. Dick novel. Here began work with the biggest design manufacturers in Italy – Driade, Alessi, Kartell – and others throughout Europe – Drimmer in Austria, Vitra in Switzerland and Disform in Spain, for examples. In 1983, then-French President François Mitterrand, on the recommendation of his Minister of Culture, Jack Lang, chose Starck to refurbish the president’s private apartments at the Élysée. The following year he designed the Café Costes. Over the years, Starck worked with same of the finest Italian furniture brands, including creating the iconic Generic chair for Kartell the innovative Lady Hio table for Glass Italia and chic sofas and armchairs for the likes of Cassina and Driade.
