PHILIPPE STARCK BY DURAVIT©
Rooted in organic forms and fluid lines, Starck’s architecture and interiors are known for beauty and sustainability. His hotel and restaurant designs grace the skylines of New York, London and Rio de Janeiro. He was even invited to create the interiors of French President Mitterrand’s private apartments. Despite such far-reaching accomplishments, Starck has attempted to “democratize” design, pricing many of his stunning objects at accessible rates. Though known primarily as an interior designer, his work spans nearly every medium imaginable, including clothing, utensils, and graphics – even vehicular design (such as Steve Jobs’ yacht, Venus).
For over four decades, Michael Graves has been a premiere name in architecture and design, earning such accolades as the Driehaus Prize® for classical architecture, the National Medal of Arts®, and the American Institute of Architecture® Gold Medal.

His popular domestic products (including furniture, fixtures, and appliances) are sold through partnerships with Target®, Delta Faucet®, and Alessi Spa®, among others. Graves held a Masters in Architecture from Harvard University and was a professor at Princeton University.
