4.0 out of 5 stars Starck loves the beatiful, simple and useful. 17 Jan 2001
"Nous sommes Dieu" is an aphorism used in the book to show how much we can do with spaces and objects that surround us. It is extraordinary the kind of empowerment suggested by the photos, interiors, objects and all a panoply of beautiful moments. One feels like doing the New afterwards, trying new perceptions and creating.

5.0 out of 5 stars DEFINITIVE STARCK ! 22 April 2000
By banaldesign.com - Published on Amazon.com
This is an updated and expanded version of this Taschen title originally published in 1996 as part of their "Jumbo" series. This second edition has been published at a more convenient size as well as at half the price of the original. The first edition was the most complete volume on the full breadth of Starck's prolific output. This second edition retains all of the visual impact and stylish layout of the original while including numerous Starck projects of the past several years. IF YOU BUY ONE BOOK ON THE WORK OF PHILIPPE STARCK - THIS IS THE ONE TO GET! *****

5.0 out of 5 stars he's not only skin-deep 3 Jan 2000
By Ping Lim - Published on Amazon.com
This book epitomises who Philippe Starck is. There are a lot of surprises & fun in this book that got me grinned from ear to ear. Who needs literature of him when the pictures of his works speak louder than words? Having said that, essays written by the great man himself at the end of the book potrayed him as a great visionary, a man ahead of his time rather than being a populist culture buffoon that some of my friends described of him. In today's rat-race world, it's good to have someone like him producing items that manage to stir our emotions & making our hearts miss a beat. In more ways than one, he's very French: unpredictable, daring, romantic, playful, enchanting, elegant,& just be himself! Viva La France~~ I can't help wondering what's next?

This is a good overview of Starks work and his career. Lots of photos though I would have liked a bit more text about him and his work.
