Vanity Case by Starck shows work by the French designer Philippe Starck. Each piece of work is assembled around a unifying element – the vanity case. The objects (or models in the case of large items) are placed in the lower part of the cases, and a series of self-critical texts by the designer in the upper part. Until 10 January 1998.
Venue: Sala Rekalde, Alameda de Recalde, 30, Bilbao, Spain.
