THE PHOTOBOOTH BLOG
December 10, 2010

starckbooth.jpgDesigner Philippe Starck has created a redesigned Photomaton for Photo‐Me International dubbed the “Starbooth,” according to recent French press reports. And according to Photo‐Me president Serge Crasniasnki, it’s an improvement on the previous look of the photobooth:

The photo booth has not changed for 50 years. This is very sexy. The others were very ugly.”

Though there’s nothing particularly offensive with Mr. Starck’s design, I think a number of us would argue that photobooth design in general has changed in the last fifty years, in a direction straight downhill, becoming less attractive and more boring and lifeless with each re‐design.

Then again, Mr. Crasnianski used Claudia Schiffer as a reference to describe this new booth; with no disrespect to Ms. Schiffer, Mr. Crasniasnki might be a few decades behind the times to begin with.
