Philippe Starck – In Tokyo and in the Kitchen

Asahi Beer Hall, Asakusa, Tokyo by Philippe Starck

French designer Philippe Starck, the vision behind creations including the Tokyo Asahi Beer building and its golden radish poo flame.

He has also designed some iconic household objects including his modern take on the lemon squeezer and the corkscrew.

Designers will look at these objects and note “an interesting interplay of form and function”. Photographers will look at the images and think, “I bet all those polished surfaces were a nightmare to shoot”. Both groups would be dead on.
