Philippe Starck:設計已死


BERLIN (AFP) — Renowned French designer Philippe Starck says he is fed up with his job and plans to retire in two years, in an interview published in a German weekly on Thursday.

"I was a producer of materiality and I am ashamed of this fact," Starck told Die Zeit weekly newspaper.

"Everything I designed was unnecessary.

"I will definitely give up in two years' time. I want to do something else, but I don't know what yet. I want to find a new way of expressing myself ...design is a dreadful form of expression."

Starck, who is known for his interior design of hotels and Eurostar trains and mass consumption objects ranging from chairs to tooth brushes and lemon juice squeezers, went on to say that he believed that design on the whole was dead.

"In future there will be no more designers. The designers of the future will be the personal coach, the gym trainer, the diet consultant," he said.

Starck said the only objects that he still felt attached to were "a pillow perhaps and a good mattress." But the thing one needs most, he added, was the "ability to love".



本世紀最偉大最具明星架勢的法國設計師Philippe Starck菲利普·斯塔克),
表示他已厭倦了他的設計工作並計劃在兩年內退休。
Philippe Starck向德國週報表示: “我是一個物質主義的制造者,並對這個事實感到很慚愧。 ”
“我的設計都是沒有必要的東西。
“我一定會在兩年時間內放棄,我想做別的事情,
但我不知道這是什麼,我想找到一個新的方式來表達自己…
設計是一個可怕的表現形式” 。
他認為,設計從整體上看經已死亡。

“在未來將不會有更多的設計師。設計師在未來將轉成其他行業...”
但他覺得一個枕頭及一張好的床墊仍需得到重視。
他補充說每個人最需要的是”去愛別人的能力” 。


ps. 如果你不太認得他,
那我們幫您復習他的成名作。

沒錯,就是幫義大利家用品 Alessi
設計的的榨汁機,
在教科書里頭皆可看見。

看來,
資源短缺的年代來臨,已經明顯影響到設計了。
過去奢華且號稱情感設計的產品會逐漸減低,
取而代之的是 green design且輪回到實用設計的未來導向。
畢竟過度追求物質主義的行為,
在地球資源日減的情況下,
或許會被當作devil的行為。
