Philippe Starck is the mastermind behind the Starck brand. He is an inventor, creator, architect and designer who sees his dreams as solutions to problems people around the world have. His creations should be used and enjoyed by everybody across the globe. Whatever Starck invents ideally improves the lives of as many people as possible.
Evolution and the use of new materials and innovative ideas is what drives the brand forward. Starck’s great enthusiasm for imagining new lifestyles and his determination to make a huge impact in changing the world means that his products are like nothing else out there. The French product designer descended from a line of Renaissance artists, so his artistic flair and thirst to invent always ran within his blood.
In 1996, Starck joined forces with the Alain Mikli International Eyewear Group to release the Starck Eyes collection. The revolutionary eyewear meets Starck’s innovative technology and design with the optical influence from experts at Mikli. Biolink is the first screwless hinge modeled after the human shoulder and is used in the eyewear. A concealed hinge, such as this, means the designs appear clean-cut and are also slick when opening and closing the glasses.
The finest titanium and mazzuchelli acetate are used that are of the highest quality. The functionality and architecture of the frames have been built so that they adapt to the human face and are made for comfort. The temples of each frame are designed to reduce the pressure on the sensitive parts of the head and have been tested to prove that this is true. The style adapts from a professional to nightlife setting in an instant. Starck eyewear is an investment in vision.
