This dood is wacky... but he definitely puts out some NICE products.
Quoted from Hypebeast:
One of the most famous and talented designer of our times, Philippe Starck, will be coming out with a new TV show on BBC Two called “Philippe Starck’s School of Design.” The show strives to find the next design all-star among a pool of 10 aspiring designers with a vision for the next “must have” products of the 21st Century. The 10 lucky people will get to work alongside Starck and his team in Paris for a period of several months, and the ultimate winner will join his team for an extended 6 months. No formal design training necessary, so if you think you got the necessary talent, this will be the chance of a lifetime.
