Philippe Starck to Have His Own TV Series

0618starck.jpg

Okay, now we get it. When everyone was scratching their collective heads, wondering why Philippe Starck was telling everyone that design was dead, he wasn’t just making an off-the-cuff, random statement, he was just setting the ground work to help promote a show he has in development with the BBC. Like every other show being made for television, it, of course, is a reality-based competition where designers work to become the best of something and win a contract somewhere, or a new car, or maybe a ride in Starck’s “green” monster yacht. But like we said a second ago, whatever the show becomes, he has an instant sell for the thing: “Design might be dead, but these edgy, 20-something designers in my competition are just the ones to bring it back to life!” (to be followed shortly thereafter with said edgy, 20-something designers involved in an absurd task that has no basis in any form of conventional reality).
