Prolific designer Philippe Starck is now dabbling in major appliances. I think the collection is distinctive, yet not showy—a nice balance. The eagle-eyed might notice a warm glow behind the door handles. It's not a light, though; the back side of the silvery square is colored a Starck-signature orange, and it's reflecting off the steel or glass door panels. That mirror-like quality also accounts for the mirage-like image on the refrigerator, which is but a bit of advertising foolery. gorenje.com
