Episode one of Trendease DesignVision is full of inspiration outside of the box!  See how different industries inspire the world of design.  Our host Jennifer Castoldi takes us on a journey through space to a land where cars influence furniture, pens go further than to write about the latest collections, buttons decorate more than textiles, army tents come into fashion, and finally we learn how designs are heating up more than the home!

Thanks for showing us so many inspirational designs and including our benches and seats made from fender scraps and pen fillers! We have found many more ways to use these unwanted stuff. You will also see new exploration with materials next year. Please keep showing us the design you see from around the world. It is helpful for many of us who cannot travel often. Thanks!

Congratulations on your new project. I am one of those who attended your seminar in the Philippines who had been a fan since then. However, times are hard and we really can't afford a subscription so the tv episode is indeed a blessing. Keep up the good work and more power !

I have always been interested in stuff like these. Inspiration can really come from everywhere.
Comment by flor 08. Dec. 2008
Congratulations very inspiring! Just have a little comment, maybe it would make it more exciting if Jennifer would really touch the items, like sitting on the sofa(blocks) just to show wether the foams are hard or soft to the touch or try turning on the reclining water heater chair and sit on it, just to show how it function, and maybe thru her facial expression we can imagine how it really feels using those items

Congratulations guys, you finally did it! Looks fantastic! I think I voted, but this is my favourite episode.

Congratulations and good luck!

Enjoyed this very first show tremendously--thanks! One suggestion: Jennifer's cheongsam print was distracting to the presentation--perhaps wear solid colors or a non-discernable pattern next time.
Comment by Jennifer Castoldi 05. Dec. 2008
I would like to dedicate this episode to Fabrice, Sanja, Clemens, and Cyril who worked above and beyond to make this project a reality! Thank you to the entire Trendease Team and the Faire Sa Deco team--without you, none of this would be possible. Enjoy the show :-)
