Design Obsessed TV


A couple of weeks back I watched a preview of a new television show launching in January called Design DNA, and I have to tell you I love it. Each episode features three iconic pieces of design, following the product from conception, design, mechanics and manufacturing.  It's fascinating!  Design Geeks our day has finally arrived.  From the everyday products we take for granted, like Umbra's Garbino (garbage bin) and the Adirondack chair, to the best in class, sub-zero fridges and miele washer, we can revel in a little design history.  You can check out some sneak peaks on Design DNA's facebook page.

Ever wonder why these products stand out from the rest?  You'll find out soon enough.

  5. Your TV programming sounds so much better than ours!!

  6. Everyone working on the show is really excited about it too! We are proud to shine a spotlight on why these items are good design and raise the profile of the design and manufacturing disciplines. We REALLY LOVE DESIGN!! and want to bring a little more design education in a way that we think is easily accessible. Because of this philosophy we are actively seeking your engagement for feedback and comments on the show, looking for your personal relationships with these items and wonder about other items are your iconic heroes that you connect with in your home.

    Please join us on Facebook at and Twitter @Design_DNA because you live with style and you will meet others that do too.

    If you don't live in Canada, you can watch the show after it is aired on the HGTV website.

    Happy, Happy New Year to you All! and we look forward to hearing from you. Live chat #DesignDNA
