Exquisite Recession: Philippe Starck Visits Big Lots

Philippe Starck at Big Lots

Super designer Philippe Starck recently brought a camera crew along on an excursion to my favorite discount carnival, Big Lots.

As per Starck, “’In a time of financial crisis, we must go back to timeless objects and rediscover the elegance of basics […] You must be very rigorous,’ Starck says, kneeling down to sift through discounted wares in search of the gems. […] ‘We have been sticking our money into the fan. We must be more intelligent now.’”
