The SLS hotel, in Beverly Hills is the first luxury hotel which Starck designed in North America, having redefined all the aspects of the experience of the hotel in the 1990s and incited the movement of "shops-hotels".

Bon I (after renovation)


Difficult to describe the new Bon of rue de la Pompe, as there is no equivalent in Paris. Philippe Starck has created a fun decor, elegant and humorous, but in no way obscures one of the best Asian-inspired cuisines that we can find.

Maison Baccarat


“It is a sort of Alice in Wonderland, a place of awoken dream. Nothing is real, everything is illusion. For a lot of people life is not very fun, it is too realistic. When you enter in the Cristal Room Baccarat in Moscow, nothing is realistic: all over there is poetry, everything is coming from somewhere else.” Ph.S

Mama Shelter

Mama Shelter


Mama Shelter is a hotel and restaurant where everyone can be united, rich, poor, known or unknown, artists ... Like an open platform that is rich in possibilities for locals to show their talent and have exchanges with others.

"There are no projects without something very strong behind them; a humanity reason, social reason, or a love reason. A vision. Otherwise no legitimacy exists. We cannot separate Mama Shelter from its genius, simple application of a vision and a story. Human history, a meeting, affinities, a deep friendship, people who love each other. This is the starting point of everything." Ph.S
