Philippe Starck has two recent industrial designs
that have made their way into relatively wide usage. The first is a motorcycle
for the Italian manufacturer Aprilia
called the Motó 6.5
. Its flushed, rounded form and flowing circular lines create a stunning balance that impressed the curators of "The Art of the Motorcycle
" exhibit enough to have it included in their showcase of classic motorcycles
His other design is on a smaller scale, a wristwatch for the Fossil company. Here again, Starck incorporates the smooth form that he used on the motorcycle with the circumvolution inherent in a wristwatch's watchband. The face of the watch is rectangular, it's LCD digits are bold and geometric and blend in harmony with the parallel edges of the band.
