DAVID STARK DESIGN

Author(s): STARK,DAVID

Fine Arts

David Stark is one of New York's most creative and sought-after event designers. This book explores forty of Stark's elaborate yet eco-friendly events--corporate, non-profit, and private--with 200 exquisite photographs and descriptive text. Organized according to the designer's quirky phraseology--"Animate the Inanimate" "Don't Take It So Seriously . . . At the End of the Day, It's a Party" "From Many Little Things Make One Big Thing" "It's Not What You Use, But How You Use It" and "Make Packaging the Prize"--this book is unique in both its presentation and its content. Stark considers his events "art installations" and when guests enter his spaces, that is exactly how they feel--surrounded by the kind of creative input and passion that can only be described as art.
Clients include Conde Nast Publications, Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum, Hearst Corporation, Michael Graves, Michael J. Fox Foundation, Minneapolis Institute of the Arts, Museum of Arts and Design, Rachael Ray, Tory Burch, Saks Fifth Avenue, Sephora, Sundance Institute, and Target.

Product Information

"The scale and visual impact of David Stark's installations rival those by many contemporary artists at the Whitney Biennial or any Chelsea gallery."
--David Byrne
"To do what David does, he has to be a consummate politician, a shrink, an accountant, and a brilliant visual artist, with the unshakable calm of a Zen master. He is all that and more. He has great taste, a fabulous sense of humor, and is blessed with an uncanny sixth sense about how to present an event so that everyone knows when they walk in the door that they are in for an unforgettable experience."
--Glenn Close
"When we asked David to help plan and design HuffPost's Pre-Inaugural Gala in Washington D.C., a free-wheeling party for over 3,000 of our closest friends, we knew we were setting the bar high. He more than cleared it. His innovative visual ideas and elegant designs were magical. He brings the same creativity and passion to this stylish new book."
--Arianna Huffington
