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.

Books in the Age of the iPad
Print is dying. Digital is surging. Everyone is confused. GOOD RIDDANCE. As the publishing industry wobbles and Kindle sales jump, book romanticists cry themselves to sleep. But really, what are we shedding tears over? This presentation is in JAPANESE, but head over here to read Craig Mod's amazing blog post about it.

Reconnecting to the Universe
BY KINGA KIELCZYNSKA
@ VOL 16
ON DEC 15, 2009
Kinga Kielczynska disguises her sculptures, graphic and performance art as a talk about "a secret cult, that is trying to reconnect to the universe". Having lost the togetherness of man and nature, Kinga travels to energetic locations with other "cult members" to perform rites and exercises to be one with nature. The fact that they steal a lamp from the hotel lobby to channel the sun's energy seems natural. Sensual, profound and ... funny!

As he explains, he couldn't find what he really wanted to read, and so he helped create an independant magazine focusing on thinking and analyzing graphic design and typographic practices, and to a larger extent, visual arts.

Studio Number One is one of the hottest -- if not THE hottest creative firms in the world right now -- and as you may know the studio's founder is Shepard Fairey (OBEY).

A French Magazine About Graphic Design and Painted Fantasy Worlds
Presentations Alexandre Dimos is a French graphic designer, and in his presentation (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 95) he talks about Back Cover. As he explains, he couldn't find what he really wanted to read in France, and so he helped create an independant magazine focusing on thinking and analyzing graphic design and typographic practices, and to a larger extent, visual arts. Miro Pecho is a Slovak painter, and he uses his presentation (in Czech, from PKN Znojmo Vol. 1) to explain how different fantasy worlds influence his paintings. Posters We have two new posters on the Tumblr blog today, starting with PKN Malaga Vol. 3, pictured above (the event was held last night). The other addition is for PKN New Orleans Vol. 7, which is happening tomorrow night. The image below is not a poster or a flyer, but rather part of a call for presenters for the next PKN in Genoa (or Genova), and we loved it so much we wanted to share it. All roads lead to PechaKucha! The event itself will take place on November 23. Calendar There are two PKNs on the agenda tonight (October 3), PKN Bilbao Vol. 13 and PKN Szczecin Vol. 1. Tomorrow, it's another big Thursday: PKN Pittsburgh Vol. 13, PKN Moncton Vol. 7, PKN Ekaterinburg Vol. 6, PKN Doha Vol. 6, PKN Vaxjo Vol. 12, PKN Kolding Vol. 18, and PKN New Orleans Vol. 7.
Joshua Davis and the Heineken Future Bottle Remix Competition

Exhibition "Design Ah!"
As part of Roppongi Art Night 2013, 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT teamed up with the global PechaKucha organization for two very special sessions of 20x20 presentations -- part of the exhibition "Design Ah!" -- starting with a kids workshop during the day that was followed by a presentation session, and then a regular PechaKucha event for adults in the evening. The kids workshop took place before the session, with a group of children who had applied to take part. They all had a couple of hours to take photos of things they found interesting in the area, and then prepare a PechaKucha 20x20 presentation. The evening session featured a fun mix of design talent, and kicked off with a presentation by Roppongi Art Night’s artistic director Katsuhiko Hibino. Both session were hosted by PechaKucha founders Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham, along with renowned graphic designer and director of the "Design Ah!" exhibition Taku Satoh.
Over the coming week we'll be highlighting presenters for next week's Vol. 103, and we start with an old friend of PechaKucha. Ian Lynam is a Tokyo-based graphic designer who has contributed lots to PK over the years, including the "Inspire Japan" graphics we used to promote our fundraiser following the events of 3/11. He'll be updating us on his latest work and activities.東京を拠点に活動されているグラフィックデザイナーのIan Lynamさんが5月29日のPechaKucha Night 東京103に登場いたします。最近のプロジェクトについてのプレゼンテーションをお楽しみに！
Since our Vol. 104 is just over a week away (on Wednesday, June 26), it's time to start highlight the presenter lineup. First up is graphic design Anselm Dastner, who has been living and working in NYC for over 20 years, before recently making the move to Tokyo.グラフィックデザイナーとしてニューヨークで活動されてきたAnselm DästnerさんがPechaKucha Night 東京104（6月26日、水曜日）にて作品を発表してくださいます。
