It's a Little Bit Weird
BY ANTHONY DICKENS
@ VOL 66
ON OCT 28, 2009
British designer Anthony Dickens gives us an insight into the weird things that inspire him.
In 1998 Anthony Dickens founded his London product and furniture design studio to design better relationships between people and objects, blending utility with simple narratives and re-imagining the everyday things that surround us. Initially designing and manufacturing his own range of lighting, Anthony’s work is diverse, often bridging the gap between product design and communications. Anthony has worked for Audi, Veuve Clicquot and Red Bull bringing the essence of brands to life.
In 2006 he achieved notable success with the launch of the Origami Table, a range of dining, side and coffee tables. It won the Elle Decoration Best Table Award 2007 and is now produced by Innermost. The Anglepoise® Fifty, a light that encapsulated the Anglepoise® brand and story, was shortlisted for the Designs of the Year 2007 and is now part of the London Design Museum collection.
Other notable products include Tekiō, currently nominated for Designs of the Year 2013, the Around Clock and Kitchen Timer for Lexon and the Scoot pizza cutter for Joseph Joseph.

A participant at last week's 101TOKYO contemporary art fair, as well as our special edition of PechaKucha Night in Tokyo, Rafael Rozendaal is an internet-based artist: he creates conceptual pieces that live on the web, and that are later sold to collectors -- their names are then added to the page's title, to acknowledge ownership. The PKN format unfortunately couldn't do justice to his online pieces -- which pretty much all include a level of interactivity -- but here at PechaKucha Daily we can at least include links to the images that were shown. Be sure to visit Rafael's website to view more of his works. COLORFLIP.COM (2008) TINYCURSOR.COM JELLOTIME.COM (2007) FATALTOTHEFLESH.COM (2004) IAMVERVERYSORRY.COM (2002) PAPERTOILET.COM (2006)
PKN Milwaukee Vol. 5
Attendance may have been lower due to the summer holidays and local festivals, but this week's PechaKucha Night in Milwaukee Vol. 5 boasted some of the best presentations yet. Organizer Jon Mueller reports: Todd Sattersten talked about the future of the book -- what will we call that type of content, and what forms will it take. Matt Abbondanzio talked about changing perspectives and how product design affects our lives. DeAnna Radaj talked about how choices one makes in selecting cake, clothing, and decoration design (for entertaining) can have a major effect on the experience people have. Ron Faiola talked about his hotel door hanger collection (this was really hilarious) and commented on how these communicate strange messages to both guests and service workers at the hotels. Chris Stutzki talked about the amazing projects his company has been involved in designing structures made of glass, and the use of glass within architecture. Milan Zori talked about being the fourth most famous person from Steubenville, OH (another hilarious presentation), and Ben Turk talked about a communist perspective in performing revolutionary theatre. Wow, what a night!
Concrete Easter Eggs
PechaKucha Night in Budapest organizer Attila Bujdoso sends in this story, about how funds were raised at the city's Inspire Japan event. All photos were taken by Tóth Máté.The sprinkling and giving of Easter eggs are flourishing traditions in Hungary, widely practiced at Easter time. According to this folk custom, on Easter Monday, in the early mornings, young men visit women and sprinkle them with cold water or perfume. In return, the women give nicely decorated Easter eggs to the men. Lately, in modern times, the hand-painted eggs are often substituted by chocolate eggs. The Easter egg became an icon of the Hungarian Easter folk custom, preparing and decorating Easter eggs show a living example and vivid presence of folk art. The history of sprinkling and giving Easter eggs can be traced back to an ancient fertility cult as well. VPI Architects, a Budapest based young design team, has designed and produced special edition Easter eggs this year: Easter eggs made out of concrete. They paired the old tradition with a new material, and once following the tradition, all steps during the production process were made by hand. They used a special mix of concrete which gave an extra smooth surface. The concrete Easter eggs are decorated with lace strips, which evoke the traditional decoration motives of Easter eggs, but also give them an extra layer of sensuality. The concrete Easter eggs played a central role at the recent PechaKucha Night Budapest event, which celebrated a concrete special edition. The event organizers (Hungarian Contemporary Architecture Centre and Bujdosó Attila) joined the Inspire Japan initiative of Tokyo-based PechaKucha founders Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham. The concrete Easter eggs were sold by auction and the income was sent as a donation for the Architecture for Humanity to support reconstruction works after the earthquake and tsunami disaster, which happened in Japan in March 2011.
