New Le Klint Classic Designed on TV

In most TV shows about design and interior, the story line is often having a bunch of amateurs competing about creating and designing something with zero budget and with no prior knowledge to what they are doing. Very often, its more about the drama between the contestants that what they actually create. Needless to say, it gets boring very quickly.

In a new show on Danish television, a group of educated designers competed in creating the next Danish design classic. Finally, I might add. The objective was that each designer had 3 weeks to create a piece of furniture in 5 different categories; arm chair, couch, lamp, etc. During each episode we got to see the designers create their pieces from initial concept and idea to a finished product.

More than one of the products has already been put into production, ready for customers to buy, one being the Noel chair by Kasper Thorup. Another of the products that came about during the show, was a lamp by Rikke Frost.

Together with Le Klint, the traditional Danish lamp company known for its iconic folded lamps, Rikke created a modern take on classic folding handicraft. The lamp will be presented at the upcoming 3 days of Design event in Copenhagen next month and ready to be purchased after the summer.

      It is called “Danmarks næste klassiker” – it is in Danish and shown on Danish television, dr.dk. I am not sure if you will be able to watch it from the US, but give at go.
