Summary "Internationally renowned designer Philippe Starck throws open the doors to a new design school in order to find the next great British designer of the 21st century. According to experts, Britain has the raw creative talent but it is not exploiting it to its full potential, even though one of the most popular subjects in school is design. Now, in a compelling and original documentary series, multi-award-winning and somewhat unconventional, designer and creator Philippe Starck is on the hunt to find the country?s most promising new designer. From nationwide open auditions, 12 aspiring designers are chosen to attend Starck?s School of Design in Paris, a unique hothouse for talent. Here, they begin their work as students under the watchful eye of design genius Starck. The ultimate goal of these aspiring designers is to turn their design ideas into real products, and hopefully win a six-month contract to work with Starck himself. In each episode, the students are trained in a different aspect of the design process, from the first sparks of creative thinking through to modelling and testing, to manufacture and launch. Along the way, they are given a variety of assignments by Starck to challenge their vision, talent and ambition. Each assignment comes with the opportunity to experiment with concepts and materials and help create prototype objects that may well be the next ?must have? products of this century. But Starck has exacting standards, and not everyone will make the grade. Some cherished ideas will be unceremoniously dumped and the weakest students will be dropped...until only two remain. With their products refined into working prototypes, whose design will make the cut?" -- website.
