Microsoft launches a Philippe Starck-designed mouse this week, in what is to be the first of several design-led offerings from the computer giant. Starck, who has been working with the company for two years, says he set out to ‘transform the mouse into a badge item that makes a statement about taste and personality’. The company is also launching four coloured mice, designed in-house, in what it bills as a move to say ‘bye bye to beige’. Further products are scheduled for launch later this year.
