In Mallorca last week, we saw the Port Adriano marina, designed by Philippe Starck and inaugurated in May.
‘It is almost invisible’, says Starck. ‘The architecture exists only on the second view. When you first arrive, you don’t notice anything and after a while you start to see’.
Elegant, with clean lines and original details (we love the smooth steel mooring plates), the structure fulfills Starck’s design criteria. “When I design something I try to make it so it doesn’t become obsolete in 20 years. We are stuck in a ‘Kleenex’ society and the only way to work is to create timeless design”.
