Hotel Designed by Philippe Starck
Philippe Starck is widely recognized as the world’s leading designer of luxury restaurant, hotel and real estate properties and has established a global ‘Cultural Tribe’ of devotees. Born in Paris, M. Starck has always sought to introduce love and happiness into your lives by designing objects and settings which illuminate one’s passage throughout the day. M. Starck developed his eclectic style at a young age and studied his trade at Ecole Nissim de Camondo. Since 1979, he has incorporated fun and style into otherwise everyday products. While many of Starck’s masterful creations are exhibited at the world’s most prestigious museums, his primary goal has invariably been democratic design – to create smart and useful products that are also beautiful and cutting-edge.
World’s leading luxury designer
SLS Hotel Designed by Philippe Starck
M. Starck’s hotels & restaurants punctuate a new imagery of the world.
The Delano in Miami, Felix restaurant at The Peninsula Hotel in Hong Kong, The Hudson in New York – and more recently the Faena hotel in Buenos Aires, Bon restaurant in Moscow, and Volar nightclub in Shanghai – have changed the hospitality experience forever. In 2005, he signed an exclusive agreement for North America on the design of SBE’s restaurants and lounges. This exclusively was expanded in 2006 to include SBE’s hotel projects. His first SBE project, Katsuya restaurant in Los Angeles, opened in the same year and in Fall 2008, his design shaped an entirely new paradigm of luxury hotels with SLS Hotel at Beverly Hills.
M. Starck has received numerous accolades throughout his career such as Grand Prix for Design, the Oscar of the design world; Chevalier de l’Ordre National de la Legion d’Honneur, Compasso d’Oro and many others.
“SLS is a property that exudes an air of sexiness and intrigue that few other hotels possess.”
