Philippe Starck is an internationally acclaimed French designer, creator and architect. Most of his designs have become cult objects, and his hotels and restaurants are timeless icons that have added a new dimension to the global cityscape. An enthusiastic advocate of sustainability, he moves us deeply with their work.
Like all of his work, Starck’s architecture is virulently and explicitly humanist. Hotels or restaurants are no longer impersonal transitional venues but living, pleasurable spaces bursting with humour and irony. They are theatres where we act out our own destinies. And the Caffè Stern in Paris is a great example of that.
In the words of Philippe Starck:
“The meeting of Stern and the Alajmo brothers is a magical obviousness. Just like the engraver Stern, the Alajmos – 2 guys from Padova, now in Venice – have been pursuing excellence and uniqueness.”
“To honour this magical encounter between both Stern and Alajmo quality, we barely transformed the classified historic place. We just improved the existing magic. The result is an ultimate place, probably the nicest bacaro in the world.”
“Visiting the Alajmo’s Caffè Stern is a journey through time, history, culture and an invitation into creativity and excellence. Our contribution was all about magic, poetry, surrealism and naturally about the food.”
