The Dr. Skud Flyswatter was designed by Philippe Starck in 1998  for ALESSI.

Born in Paris in 1949, Starck is considered one of the most original and creative designers of our time. He has obtained many important acknowledgements, such as the Grand Prix National de la Création industrielle and the Honor Award of the American Institute of Architects. Crossing many design borders and boundaries, Starck best describes himself as "a Japanese architect, an American art director, a German industrial designer, a French artistic director, and an Italian furniture designer". It is through all of these inspirations that he builds each of his designs for functional, yet aesthetically effective, household products. Dr. Skud the Fly Swatter is another example of such creativity. Continue your emphasis on form and functionality to every aspect of your life, down to the smallest details. Created from thermoplastic resin in four vibrant color options with the faint impression of a face designed into the piece, it will prove to be extremely useful, and durable for years to come.
