Okay, so sue me; I "borrowed" the title of this post from the article in Fast Company about iconoclastic designer Philippe Starck. Within the piece--which is an incredible mindboggle of a read--was this definition of how one "knows" they are in a Starck-designed building:
"When you open the door
and walk through the lobby,
you will go 'Oh, it's weird.'
Everything is too big, too small.
But it will give you some energy.
For me, I am just a producer of Surprise."
Producing Surprise is why Starck is one of the world's most in-demand designers of everything from furniture and buildings to homewares and private yachts. Check out this Professor of Pow! at his website...or at the hippest hotel near you.
