Acclaimed French designer Philippe Starck reportedly claims to be working with Apple to help design a revolutionary new product that will launch within the next eight months. ”Indeed, there is a big project together which will be out in eight months,” the designer said on air during an interview with a French TV show, Le Figaro reported. He continued, stating that the mysterious new product would be “quite revolutionary.” Starck’s credited works range from hotels to toothbrushes, and several consumer electronics devices he designed are currently sold in Apple Stores. The designer claims to have met with Apple co-founder Steve Jobs on numerous occasions over the years. “For seven years I came to see him once a month in Palo Alto and elsewhere,” Starck said. BGR reported last year that Apple plans to launch a redesigned iPhone this fall, and the company is also rumored to be working on a flat-panel “iTV” television that could launch later this year as well.
