About the Artist:
Philippe Starck jump-started his career by designing two nightclub interiors in Paris in the 1970's. The success of the clubs won the attention of President Francois Mitterand, who asked Starck to refurbish one of the private apartments in the Elysee Palace.
Two years later, Starck designed the interior of the Café Costes, Paris, and was on his way to becoming a design celebrity. In quick succession, he created elegant interiors for the Royalton and Paramount hotels in New York, the Delano in Miami and the Mondrian in Los Angeles.
Starck's approach to design is subversive, intelligent and always interesting. He has said that the designer's role is to create more "happiness" with less.
Together with Jorge Perez created ICON South Beach and now AGAIN have joined forces to bring you ICON Brickell!
