The Tooth Stool
Born in Paris in 1949, Philippe Stark is one of the most original and creative designers of our time. Philippe Stark himself likes to give whimsical names to his products. Humor and simplicity are the way he leads his life – and his signature in his work. Though his interior designs are often of the most profuse baroque, he does not burden himself with the ornaments of celebrity. He likes to keep alive the mischievous enthusiasm of the boy he once was, when he sat underneath the drawing board while his father, an aircraft designer, was working – hours spent sawing, cutting, gluing, sanding – or, later, dismantling bikes, motorcycles and other objects. He has obtained many important acknowledgements such as the Grand Prix National de la Création industrielle and the Honor Award of the American Institute of Architects, he considers himself as "a Japanese architect, an American art director, a German industrial designer, a French artistic director, an Italian furniture designer".Created for the St Martin's Lane hotel in London in 2002 by Philippe Starck, the Tooth stool is relaunched this year with new finishes. Tooth has been often quoted as the perfect example of biomorphic design. Its unconventional shape also creates many manufacturing challenges that, as often the case at xO, have been solved through the adaptation of technologies borrowed from the automotive industry.
