Voices in Design: Philippe Starck
Design for Reconnecting
Six of the most influential designers tell us a few words about their perspective on the changes we are experiencing nowadays and how to deal with them.
“Work is a fun task. Hopefully, the ‘After Covid’ will not make the implosion of society. Unfortunately, ‘post-Covid’ life will not be a revolution. Only a few real-life confirmations of what we already know:
- The origin of the word ‘emploi’ (work in French) means obligation.
- We do not need very specialized furniture to work.
- To work, above all, is to create.
- It is good to work at home because you can follow your own biorhythm
- Taking naps doubles your life and your work power.
- Sex is good for creativity because it is the same.
- Have a bed or sofa in your workspace.
- Music is very good for working, since it organizes your brain.
- Try to work standing up and move a lot.
- When you work, look out the window and think of something else.
- Be honest, creative, healthy, generous, visionary, sincere and rebellious, and your work will be better independent of the type of chair you sit in.”
