Astragal recently slipped into one of those establishments with blacked- out windows. It was not the usual screen of modesty for 'Adult Literature' but rather an exhibition of the work of Phillippe Starck - in Barnsley. Boasting a modest collection of nearly 20 chairs and various examples of product design, the exhibition concentrates on the sci-fi influences on Starck, especially his choice of names. These, it seems, he borrowed from Philip K Dick's novels, including an ashtray called 'Ray Hollis' and a chair called 'Francesca Spanish'. Starck is 50 this year and may be about to hang up his spurs. Perhaps a new design Messiah will emerge from Barnsley to design the 'Parkie', the 'Juicy Geoff' or the 'Dee Kee Bird'.
