Last week, Apple fans were abuzz with news that famed French designer Philippe Starck was allegedly working with Apple on a "revolutionary" project, but Apple came forward quickly and denied any collaboration. Now, Starck's press team has issued a similar statement, saying that Starck is working on a "private project" for the family of late Apple CEO Steve Jobs. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that the French designer is in fact working on designing the interior of the mythical yacht that Steve Jobs was having built before his death. It looks like Sir Jony Ive continues to wear the crown of design king in Cupertino.
