Philippe Starck Comes to Collect: Jobs Estate Reportedly Owes Designer €3 Million for Family Yacht

Shortly before his untimely death, Steve Jobs commissioned Philippe Starck to co-design Venus, the yacht with the iPhone aesthetic, for a fee of €9 million ($12 million). The two collaborators created a ship with their mutual signature clean lines that was completed in October. While the Jobs’ family has paid €6 million of designer’s fees, the ship was impounded last Wednesday and will be held in a Dutch port until the outstanding €3 million balance has been paid, according to Reuters.
