Design Philippe Starck, 2013
Polyethylene
Made in Italy by Magis

"As a child I never liked school, however, I loved dogs. Should I had met this learned dog at that time, I would have become a scholar, too. But I missed this occasion and unfortunately the learned dog exists now only for children. Too late." -Philippe Starck

Le Chien Savant is a design by Philippe Starck according to an idea of C. Bavaud. Le Chien Savant has taken it into his head to make all children as clever as he is. What a shame there's not a dog like him for grown-ups, too.

Le Chien Savant is a children's chair/desk made from polyethylene. Suitable for outdoor use.

Philippe Starck

Paris-born Philippe Patrick Starck (b. 1949) has a wide range of design, but is very well known for his consumer goods and interiors. He was educated in Paris at the École Camondo and founded his first design firm, which specialized in inflatable objects, in 1968. The next year, he became art director of his firm along with Pierre Cardin. He has worked both independently as an interior designer and as a product designer since 1975. After designing the private apartment interiors for French President François Mitterrand in 1982, his career began to climb significantly. In 1986 he joined Domus Academy Department of Design as an associate lecturer. Two of Starck's famous designs include stylized toothbrushes (1989) and a sleek juicer dubbed the Juicy Salif created for Alessi in 1990. The Juicy Salif has become an affordable and popular cult item.
The Magis company was founded in 1976 and had their first success in 1984 with Stepladder that was influential and crossed over into the designer furniture market from the hardware stores. They had two more huge successes in 1994 with Jasper Morrisons Bottleand the Lyra stool from the Italia Group, their bestseller. Two years later, the Bombo stool designed by Stefano Giovannoni would gain enormous success and cultivate an imitable style. Once the company gained momentum, they never slowed and would go on to produce Jasper Morrisons technologically advanced Air-Chair Michael Youngs Dog House Konstantin Grcics Chair One the Me Too line of childrens objects and furniture, and the Striped family from the Bouroullec brothers.
