Svensk Form (the Swedish Society of Crafts and Design) is a not-for-profit membership association mandated by the Swedish government to promote Swedish design at home and abroad.
ArchiAid was formed soon after the devastating events of 3/11 in Japan. Many of Japan's leading architects joined forces with students of architecture to help design and rebuild some of the hardest hit coastal areas.
PechaKucha Nights at Tokyo Designers Week are where audiences can catch presentations by some of the brightest and most interesting design talent in Japan (with a few welcomed guests from abroad). Each year's event fills up the TDW Dome venue where it is held.
PechaKucha teamed up with 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT as part of the "Design Ah!" exhibition to produce two special events on March 23rd. One for kids, where they made and presented their 20x20s in an open workshop. The other for 'grown-ups' was part of Roppongi Art Night, and featured an inspiring lineup of design talent.

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.

ON NOV 09, 2009
Can the design of shop furniture, products, packaging, retail space large and small, display areas, security procedures, retail management and the myriad of other factors in this environment – even the experience of shopping itself – reduce shoplifting and improve ambiance without turning a small newsagent or a large department store into Alcatraz?
