Philippe Starck to deliver closing Keynote speech at GSF

Photograph  
THE NETHERLANDS, Amsterdam. World renowned lifestyle engineer and unconventional architect, Philippe Starck has agreed, after several years of invitations, to take to the stage at the 2012 Global Superyacht Forum, to share his unique perspectives and visions for the superyacht world.
 
Having worked on a variety of large and small yacht projects, many of which have challenged the norm and brought new thinking to the industry, Starck has recently made his mark on our industry through his inspiring relationship with Steve Jobs on the M/Y Venus, built by and under going sea trials with Feadship.

Following his brilliant creativity and the rare style applied to M/Y A, built by Blohm & Voss, Starck has always been on our list to speak at any of our conferences and a recent conversation has now confirmed that he will appear on the afternoon of the 14th November, for a brand new closing Keynote session. As a man that is more a global brand, with a mind that inspires and challenges the ordinary, this closing keynote is likely to deliver the prefect end to a conference that is focused exclusively in future thinking.

As one of his famous quotes states “I think the only style of tomorrow is Freedom… Freedom to choose what you need and what you want”, this resonating comment is the perfect mantra for owners and designers of the next generation of yachts. If you would like to register to attend the Global Superyacht Forum, or would just like to attend the final day on the 14th, please contact suzie@superyachtevents.com.
