Notes from the Archive: Philippe Starck has designed a wide range of consumer goods and interiors. He focuses on mass-produced consumer goods rather than one-off pieces, seeking ways to reduce cost and improve quality in mass-market goods, which makes him a truly democratic designer. His products have sensual, appealing forms suggestive of character or personal identity which are often given clever or whimsical names – such as Dr. Skud for his Fly Swatter design. When the fly swatter is moved, Dr. Skud's face is visible in the deep blue plastic. The perfect summer accessory or gift! Starck's work can be seen in major museums including the Musée National d'Art Moderne (Paris), the Musée des Arts Décoratifs (Paris), MOMA and the Brooklyn Museum in New York, the Vitra Design Museum (Basel), and the Design Museum (London).
