    "Chic ! meets" : Juan Amador - "A potted history" of the Coconut chair - "Rising trends" : Concrete jewellery - "What to do with" oranges ? - "Insights" : Joris Laarman

    "Chic ! meets" : Juan Amador
    This week's creative talent is chef Juan Amador. His penchant for experimenting and his molecular adventures have earned him increasing recognition, but despite this success, he continues to seek out new flavours to stand out from commonplace cuisine. A philosophy he puts into daily practice at his restaurant in Langen, a few kilometres outside Frankfurt.

    "A potted history" of the Coconut chair
    It's the story of an American designer, Georges Nelson who loved to create furniture that was aesthetic, practical and philosophical. All his creations had to embody the idea of progress and modernity. He worked with the greatest names of his era, Charles and Ray Eames, who invented the molded shell, and Isamu Noguchi, who designed the famous Akari lamps. In the 1950s, he had fun inventing two completely offbeat armchairs - the Marshmallow Bench and the Coconut Chair. The idea behind the chair was to reproduce the form of a shell. Georges Nelson took his inspiration from shapes in nature to design a totally curved chair. Moulded in plastic and glass fibre, supported by three small chrome legs, the Coconut Chair met with huge success particularly among wealthy American industrialists. 82 cm high, 104 cm wide, and 84 cm deep, the Coconut Chair embodies simplicity, comfort and mobility. The Coconut Chair today resides in the most prestigious museums. It has become a veritable 20th century design icon.

    "Rising trends" : Concrete jewellery
    Jewellery designers, like Patrice Fabre and Marie-Françoise Rouy are taking their inspiration from increasingly surprising sources, particularly from concrete.

    "What to do with" oranges ?
    We asked top pasty chef Pierre Hermé what to do with an orange, a fruit that is omnipresent in Spain. Especially for Chic, the Parisian pastry chef concocted an exceptional dessert.

    "Insights" : Joris Laarman
    You've probably already heard of the young trio of Dutch designers, the Demekersvans. Today we meet their neighbour in the workshop next to them in Rotterdam - Joris Laarman, another design prodigy. Like the Demerkersvans, he was noticed at the Endhoven design school by the great priestess of trends, Li Edelkoort. The young man's talent carried him along... and he earned immediate recognition. Blending poetry and experimentation, Joris Laarman's objects and pieces of furniture have already become design classics and are now on display at major international biennials.

    This documentary series explores those districts of New York that make up a kaleidoscope of languages, cultures, nationalities and beliefs. The series is an invitation to take a stroll off the beaten track, in search of pure New York spirit and energy.

    Harlem, Brooklyn, Uptown, Downtown, The Bronx - all familiar sounding place names. Film and perhaps to a lesser extent literature have supplied us with myriad images of these mythical districts that have their own identities, colours and sounds. Yet, for the last 10 years, these districts have been steadily reinventing themselves.

    We meet both iconic characters and Ordinary Joes - those everyday characters who are an integral part of their surroundings. They sneak us in through the back door, showing us round unique and forgotten places, and their opposites - places that create a sensation the moment they open. The characters share their insights into the life and soul of their neighbourhoods.

    Off the Scottish coasts, weavers have re-started traditional tweed production and succeeded in winning over new markets. 

     Resistant, durable and 100% organic, this woolen fabric, which is made exclusively by select craftsmen, is highly prized by major clothing brands such as Nike and Chanel. A tradition as a heritage of a know-how that once dressed the British aristocracy and which, after having fallen into oblivion, has now regained its letters of nobility. Weavers are forced to innovate and regularly create new patterns to stay competitive and keep the wind in their sails.

    Everyone is familiar with cheerleaders, the infamous "pom-pom girls". This journey takes us to the heart of the cheerleader myth, providing an insight into all aspects of America.

    Scenes from American films and television series invariably come flooding back at the mere mention of the word cheerleaders, with young, attractive, smiling girls, in brightly coloured costumes jigging around on the side of the field, shouting support for their team. Cheerleaders are the incarnation of the America of tranquil high schools and suburbs. They are an object of fantasy par excellence, a jubilant youth that can be interpreted and reclaimed in endless ways.

    Apple, the brand that symbolises counter-culture, has become a giant that dictates cultural norms and trends. At the root of their success story lies the genius marketing ploy of making mainstream power look tacky by declaring themselves counter to it, thereby conquering consumers with their cool.

    The death of Steve Jobs, on October 5th, provided a dramatic illustration of the paradox of Apple, which is at the heart of this film. It is the first time in history that an entrepreneur has been applauded and mourned as a benefactor of mankind, and their commercial success lauded as a work of genius.
    This fascinating ability to combine a "rebel-brand" image with huge commercial profits will be the object of this documentary investigation, which examines both the universe of Mac and modern man and his ambiguities.
    Tracing the history of the brand, from the beginnings of the small computer company to today's multinational, the film shows how Apple has taken a giant bite out of the market, thanks to its aesthetic choices, emotional marketing and indisputable technological ingenuity.

    A new generation - the geek generation - has taken over. It is now fashionable to be a geek and for everyone to claim to be one. In saga form, this documentary follows the irresistible rise of a generation and the cultural tsunami it has spearheaded.

    First appearing in the 70s, geeks had a shared passion for computers, science fiction and comic books, and developed their own culture opposed to the norm. Right from the start, geek culture established its own key dates, codes, special places and cult figures. The Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Steve Jobs, Pac-Man and Mario Bros were all vital references.
    Things had changed by the 2000s. Now the first-generation geeks were thirty or forty and had become a vital creative and economic power. Their values reflected those promoted by modern society, and popular imagination - especially in films - turned the geek into a central character.

    So the geek explosion is important to everyone. It is the symptom and representation of a new rapport with technology, a new way of communicating. It reflects a swing from traditional culture to pure entertainment culture.

    This prime-time documentary depicts a day in the hectic lives of a few members of New York's high society, and takes the form of interwoven portraits of the city's most influential and powerful personalities, in fashion, politics, film, literature, music and more.

    We follow some of the Big Apple's most powerful public figures as these kings and queens of New York move in their circles of glitter and gold, of personalities and power.

    Inspired by the city, they in turn, inspire the world. New York is their oxygen and opium. They dictate trends and shape opinion. They are envied and imitated. They are New York.
    We spend a week in the company of these well-connected hotshots.

    There are interviews with Jay Mc Ierney, Benjamin Millepied, Vito Schnabel, Diane von Furstenberg, Daniel Boulud and Elisa Sednaoui, among others.

    Interviews with famous personalities such as Carole Bouquet, Paloma Picasso, the "nose" Jean Kerléo, Jean-Paul Guerlain and Serge Lutens are interspersed with accounts of perfume "recipes" to waft us into the heady world of perfume creation.

    This film is the story of perfume through the ages. It takes us through the different stages a new perfume has to go through before it can be launched, from the moment when the fragrance is created to the complex manufacturing and marketing processes. It explores the reasons why we use perfume, and asks what makes one fragrance successful whilst another is instantly forgotten. At each stage, the celebrities and designers who put their name to a perfume, the "noses" who combine ingredients to produce a new fragrance, and the marketing experts and packaging designers who build an image around it take us behind the scenes of the international perfume industry.

    What does being a woman mean in contemporary Cambodian society, where the massacres of the Pol Pot regime still echo, and where the Khmer identity is still trying to establish itself, between maintaining traditions and the spectacular evolution of its capital Phnom Penh, driven by the Asian economic boom?

    Beauty and physical appearance have become important issues in today’s Cambodia, in order to find a job and exist socially. Benefitting from the influence of other models and lifestyles, an increasing number of Cambodian women are attempting to push back the boundaries of a conservative society. All the characters in this film reveal a country that is in the throes of change, in which they do not which to play secondary roles.

    The report accompanies an Indian woman and her son, who sacrifice their hair to a temple. It then follows what happens to their hair as it becomes part of the "temple hair" business.

    Our hair can be a reflection of our personality. It should be strong, thick and shiny, but often it is short, lifeless and thin. That is why more and more people are turning to other people's hair. The splendid, artificial hair comes primarily from India, and is produced mainly from hair that has been sacrificed in temples by believers.
