YOO INSPIRED BY
Philippe Starck needs no introduction - he's undoubtedly the world's most revered living designer. "I like to open the doors to people's brains".
For four decades, he has liberally spread his creativity and ideas across the design landscape, putting his mark on everything from toothbrushes, motorbikes, sanitary ware, restaurants and even the presidential Elysee Palace. He is one of the originators of the boutique hotel interior, and currently putting finishing touches to the ultra-grand Royal Monceau Hotel in Paris.
Philippe's influence on the way we live now is everywhere – in our uses of colour, materials and space, and in our desire for good design at every juncture. In 1999, Starck joined forces with John Hitchcox to establish YOO. Their aim: to create truly extraordinary living spaces. His brand at YOO, YOO inspired by Starck, has seen the successful completion of over 20 projects around the world.
