Ich Bin ein Designer: CBS News Spends Sunday Morning in Berlin

As a sizable chunk of the design community comes together to talk trends and compare chairs during the International Contemporary Furniture Fair in New York City, CBS News is taking its sunny Sunday Morning on the road for the show’s annual “Design Issue.” Charles Osgood, he of the soothing voice and omnipresent bow tie, will anchor the show from Berlin this Sunday morning (9:00-10:30am on CBS) and visit such sites as Charlottenburg Palace, the Berlin Zoo, and Brandenburg Gate. Meanwhile, correspondents scattered about the globe will cover everything from architect David Hertz and the beachfront eco-mansion of actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus to bento boxes, cutting-edge competitive swimsuits, and the rent-by-the-hour bicycles that are all the rage in Paris. A CBS press release also tempts with the promise of a segment in which London correspondent Mark Phillips “explains what’s replaced the stalwart umbrella as a must-have for the well-dressed Briton.” Hmm. We’re guessing endless wads of cash? A shady uncle who was bullish on Gazprom?
