Philip has been compared to Calder, Giacometti and Mondrian. Interior Design magazine called Philip a “Furniture Talent” and presented a full-page feature on him in 2008, noting, “While his work evokes a blend of Piet Mondrian and Alberto Giacometti with its chunky forms and regimented geometrics, it was vintage bangles and pendants that inspired the Ramona fire screen … and the Bauhaus-esque Quadro takes a different turn.” David Keeps of The Los Angeles Times called his Forma table “a sculptural piece that echoes Alexander Calder.”
