Here at Kingston Lafferty Design, we like to be inspired by our surroundings and by fellow designers the world over. This spans across all creative fields, from interiors and architecture to fashion design and fine art. Over the next few months we are going to showcase some of those designer influences and pause to appreciate the creativity out there. These will be our Designer Crush pieces.
For our first one, we have chosen the legendary Philippe Starck. A key inspiration throughout all of our college careers, Starcks playfulness and boldness jumps out in all of his work.
Starck is a French designer who is very well known for his versatility. His design talent spans across industrial products, accessories, furniture, lighting, hotel, bar and restaurant design. He has even expanded into architecture. As the son of an aeronautical engineer, his duty from an early age was to invent and create. Starck hoped his creations would improve people’s lives by adding humour and fun to objects of a daily use. His unique sense of humour is inevitable and present in the interiors he designed all over the world. The combination of colours, dramatic lighting, the juxtaposition of objects in the spaces he created is truly inspirational and reflects his personality.
His designs and imagination bring you to another dimension.
We love his holistic approach to design in particular. Check out our Pinterest board for some inspiration on our Designer Crush… Philippe Starck.
