All of Starck’s designs sparked from his interest in where and how people live. This interest ties in with his concept of democratic design, which is the focus on mass-produced consumer goods rather than one of a kind pieces specially reserved for elites. By doing so, mass-market goods would improve in quality and reduce in cost.

Starck has worked with internationally known Italian manufacturers Alessi, Kartell, and Driade. He has also designed buildings, hotel, yacht interiors, etc., all over the world. Starck’s designs are innovative, untraditional, and have left a strong mark in design culture.
