The famous designer Philippe Starck was at Le Web yesterday and, so, I wondered what he’d say about Amazon’s Kindle. It was interesting to me that he hadn’t seen it yet and he panned it in a way that I could never do with a straight face. Ended up saying “it’s almost modern.” Ouch.
ognibeni uploaded this video of the Starck Kindle review.
Thank you to Adam Tinworth, who took the picture above and also has tons of other notes about his talk.
It’s fun that Starck doesn’t take himself too seriously. At one point he pointed out that Apple’s co-founder Steve Jobs +is+ a design genius and added that he only looks like a genius because he wore leather pants onto the stage.
