Design guru Philippe Starck is working on a "revolutionary" project with US computer giant Apple that will come out in time for Christmas, the French designer revealed on Friday.

"Indeed, we have a big together that will be out in eight months," Starck told France Info radio, declining to comment further because of what he called California-based Apple's " cult".

The 63-year-old designer did however say that the project was "fairly, if not very, revolutionary".

Starck, who has previously designed everything from night clubs to bus passes, also told how for years he regularly visited legendary Apple boss , who died in October, at his Palo Alto, California, home.

"For seven years I went to see him once a month in Palo Alto and I'm going there on Monday because even if he's dead, now I go to see his wife. We used to love talking about interesting things," he said.
