designer Philippe Starck says that not being able to save lives and tackle key global issues in his work leaves him feeling "impotent"- The Independent

The designer has created a new photobooth that meets his aims of designing democratic and affordable products. Starck claims they offer a solution for those who can't afford a camera, adding that photos help us to "exist." He also laments the modern propensity for vandalism that threatens the booths, saying: "Twenty years ago it was possible to design something pretty and people to respect it. Not now."
