yoo is a collaboration of ideas; the experience of the world’s most celebrated designer, Philippe Starck, matched with the vision of the international property developer John Hitchcox. These two leaders in their field have come together with a single ground breaking concept: to harness the creative diversity of Starck, with the innovative buildings developed by Hitchcox.
The idea is yoo. yoo creates extraordinary places, allowing people to buy functional, brilliantly-designed homes.
With over 50 global projects, yoo brings to life the creative, boundless imaginations of what the home can be into reality. Philippe’s influence on the way we live now is everywhere – in our uses of colour, material and space, and in our desire for good design at every juncture. In 1999, Starck joined forces with John Hitchcox to establish yoo. His collaboration at yoo, yoo inspired by Starck, has seen the successful completion of over 20 projects around the world.
Philippe Starck is not only the world’s most renowned designer but also a respected visionary.
From the everyday products – furniture and lemon squeezers, to revolutionary mega yachts, hotels that stimulate the senses, phantasmagorical venues and individual wind turbines, he never stops pushing the limits and criteria of contemporary design.
Inventor, creator, architect, designer, artistic director, Philippe Starck is certainly all of the above, but more than anything else he is an honest man directly descended from the great artists of the Renaissance.
