U.S. net Spike TV is readying a furniture design competition series entitled Framework that will be hosted by hip-hop artist Common (pictured) and will debut in January.

The original series follows 13 designers and builders who must put their skills to the test during a series of challenges held over 10 weeks. The group will be asked to use unconventional materials, rethink classic furniture styles, and integrate a number of techniques.

Each week, a contestant will be eliminated by a panel of judges that includes top furniture designers Nolen Niu and Brandon Gore and musician-actor Common, with the winning contestant receiving a US$100,000 cash prize and the chance for their work to be sold by a major manufacturer.

The 10 x 60-minute series was created by Dwight D. Smith and Michael Agbabian of Mission Control Media, who are also exec producing the show alongside Andrea Richter and Common.

Framework will debut on January 6 at 10 p.m. EST/PST.
