About the Show

Design DNA is a biography that shows how consumer goods and designer items for the home are conceived designed and manufactured.

The hero may be a designer chair, a museum-worthy table, or even a common toilet. From ordinary to extraordinary, each episode features the life story of 3 essential and iconic elements of home design.

It could be a kettle from Alessi, a shaver from Braun, a washer form Miele, or a stand mixer from KitchenAid. Whatever it is, there’s a fascinating story that follows its creation from the first spark of conception, through the trial and error of design, to the factory floor.
