I don't have a favorite architect. I'm not into all that. I know nothing about design or architecture. My daughter says I am a modern autistic. I live alone, I work alone, I don't watch TV or go to cinema or read magazines—I have simply no idea of what is happening in the world. — Philippe Starck edited by Deb Schwartz, Wall Street Journal
Ever wonder what goes on in the minds of some of the world's greatest designers? In the case of Philippe Starck, the answer may as well be nothing but motorcycles and a collection of impulses and ambient music. The Wall Street Journal shares with us a short interview from the surprisingly humble, honest and even somewhat absent designer known for bringing us everything from some of the best interior design to toothbrushes to $300,000,000 super yachts.
A word of advice from Monsieur Starck... "My advice to students is 'don't try to make design.' It's so fashionable now for students—there are now more designers than there are forks per person."
Wise words to potential designers or bitter remarks?
