NEXT EVENT TOTO Toilet Architecture

Toilet Architecture presentation powered by PechaKucha

TOTO, Japan's foremost bathroom company, are inviting designers and architects to interpretate and explore the subject of Toilet Architecture in a special event powered by PechaKucha, as part of the Clerkenwell Design Quarter and London Design Festival 2014.

It spans cross-continental societal and ethical needs, as well as evolving personal health and hygiene issues. The topic of toilet architecture is one that consumers often overlook, but our daily experiences have a direct impact on our quality of life no matter where we are living.

The event will be hosted by PechaKucha co-founder Mark Dytham.

Confirmed speakers:

  • Alex Mowat, Urban Salon
  • Tomas Klassnik, The Klassnik Corporation
  • Rock Galpin, Rock Galpin Studio

"Powered by PechaKucha" events are one-off events that are separate from regular city-based PechaKucha Nights, and that are usually held as part of festivals and conferences, but can also act as standalone events. These events include presentations that use the PechaKucha 20 images x 20 seconds format."
