Philippe Starck, the French product designer was born in Paris in 1949. With regards Furniture, he is famous for his designs that are made from polycarbonate plastic. World famous products he has designed include the transparent Louis Ghost chair, Eros chair, Bubble Club sofa, and La Bohème stool. He has also been involved in the re-launch of the World War II-era Navy Chair in the U.S., designing a classic furniture collection around it.

Instead, his product designs are of usable household items which Starck himself helps to market for mass production.
