Supermonkeys

“Because I am a professional, I am always concerned by all the budgetary and technical requirements, but it is completely subsidiary if you compare it with the main inspiration that comes from our own evolution:

from the bacteria of four billion years ago to the supermonkey we are now to what we shall be in four billion years when the sun shall explode  and vitrify the earth. This beautiful and romantic history gives me all the sources of inspiration I need.”

— Philippe Starck
