The online network Ovation has launched a new design show that premiered last month and is meant to show to show off new contemporary products for your home.
I haven’t seen the first episodes of “My Design Life” and so I can’t necessarily recommend it. But it sounded interesting enough to share with you.
Ovation calls the show a “docu-series.” It follows design expert Lisa S. Roberts (see at right) and her team as they visit trade shows, museum exhibits and design stores gathering ideas and inspiration for Lisa's new book, DesignPOP: Popular Trends in Contemporary Product Design.
The show will air in 10 back-to-back half-hour episodes on Wednesday nights with a "My Design Life" marathon recapping all ten episodes airing Sept. 28, starting at 8 p.m., and repeating on Oct. 1 at noon.
The show can also be found on Comcast On Demand in the "Top Picks" section through Oct. 31.
Here’s what Ovation says about the show:
Throughout the season, viewers will be treated to an inside look at the inner workings of the design industry, including visits to the New York International Gift Fair, designer Karim Rashid's studio, and the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum.
In addition, the show will spotlight iconic design objects from renowned companies and designers such as Alessi, Flos, Yves Behar, Ingo Maurer and Cappellini.
Here are a few of the products featured in the first episodes:
The show’s website – www.mydesignlife.tv – offers even more info, including a listing of products, designers, manufacturers, and purchasing information.
"The show is entertaining and educational,” says Sara Baxter of Nancy Glass Productions, which created the show. “My interest in design is grounded in the idea that if we teach people about design and what makes it valuable, they will be more likely to purchase these objects, enhancing their own lives and creating more work for designers.”
