Trading a Nachum for a Starck

Want to know who designed 1OAK - the new super club by the super friends? Well, A Little Birdy knows and wants to share it with us. Isn't that sweet? From the LB: "the designer of 1oak is Roy Nachum. He is Israeli and he is a hack. Most of his designs are Phillipe Starck 'inspired' ripoffs. You can see on his website... oversize lamp shades, golden guns, interior ivy walls. There is nothing original. All taken from Starck." Tell us how you really feel Birdy. So much for some holiday Birdy cheer. We would hate to have to fight you over a piece of bread. Scrolling through the pictures on his site does demonstrate he loves those big lamp shades and our other Little Birdy did say the club seems to cherry pick other hot spots from around the city.

Color us unwilling to pick a side, because one Birdy's Starck is another's Roy Nachum. We think there is room for all of us in this nest.

WHO CARES?? AS LONG AS THERE ARE HOT GIRLS THERE THEN IT DOESNT REALLY MATTER. RICHIE DOES A GREAT JOB BRINGING THE HOT CHICKIES SO DOES IT REALLY MATTER IF THE DESIGNER COPIES? HE DOES IT TO MAKE MONEY, ITS HIS JOB. AS LONG AS ITS A GOOD ATMOSPHERE.

If you spend all this money - shouldn't you strive for something unique?

If you spend all this money...you strive to make your money back! Taking the road already traveled is a lot less risky than being "unique."

Of course, it's all relative. Who is to say that Mr. Starck didn't rip off Joe Schmoe? Oversize lamp shades - yep, that's inspiring and original. Golden Guns - yep, that's a James Bond movie. Ivy walls - yep, the color ivory is unique, like elephant tusks and bar soap. So, this LB is missing the point that no one starts with a blank slate.

First, I just wanted to know who made you incharge to talk on behalf any design reporter or something like this?
Second, I was in this club and actually knows this artist for a long time. The things that you are talking about doesn't make sense! So go back to your resources and learn about Starck designs and just after you did that try to compare it to other unique and talented young artists.
