Philippe Starck: Ashamed, Retiring, and Saying Design is Dead?
Sometimes even dream jobs get old, and it seems Philippe Starck is tired of being a famous designer, feels that design is dead anyway, and plans to retire within the next two years. He also feels that the designers of the future will be "the personal coach, the gym trainer, and the diet consultant," and that everything he designed in his career was "unnecessary" and he's ashamed to have been part of it.
Sounds like he's having a bit of a midlife crisis or something! It will be interesting to see what he ends up doing in the future -- with a creative mind like his it could be something really interesting.
