Starck’s style could be described as Contemporary. He is interested in bright colorsquirky shapes and the use of unusual materials. He wants his designs to be mass-produced and relatively affordable but on the other hand, he wants them to last. Many of his designs can be identified by his repeated use of particular shapes and forms. His designs tend to look curvaceous and are smoothly textured.
