Design Against Crime
BY SPIKE SPONDIKE
@ VOL 1
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?

Three New Projects by Torafu Architects
Torafu Architects never cease to delight the audience with their innovative projects every time they participate at a PechaKucha Night in Tokyo -- they usually pop in every year to update everyone on their latest works -- and they do so again this time as part of a special pre-Tokyo Design Week edition.
Science-inspired Design Projects by Oscar Diaz
In Tokyo as a participant at this year's edition of DesignTide, Spanish designer Oscar Diaz takes us on a tour of various works, each offering an interesting solution to a design question. He also covers his amazing "Rec & Play" project, a collaboration with designer Yuri Suzuki. The presentation was recorded at last week's PechaKucha Night in Tokyo Vol. 77.
The Salaryman Project, Amazing Cakes, and 4000 in Tel Aviv
Presentations In October 2006, as he was taking photos of nature in the forest near Kawaguchiko, a salaryman with a suitcase appeared on the track. Ever since that day, Bruno Quinquet has tried to investigate the mysteries of office work in Japan through photography. He has exhibited this series -- which is the topic of his presentation (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 92) -- in Japan and abroad. Last month, he launched a crowdfunding campaign to support the production of the "Salaryman Project Business Schedule 2013." These are not the cakes you are used to seeing. In this first presentation (in Italian) from PKN Pisa Vol. 1, Alessandra Pacini -- a cake designer -- shares some of the amazing cakes she's produced over the years. Cake design is an interesting form of art, in which anyone can make a professional-looking cake, with no limits to imagination -- although using only edible materials is key. Posters We have quite a few new posters up on the Tumblr blog today, including two from Kosice (for last week's Vol. 18, and the upcoming Vol. 19), a well as for PKN Okayama Vol. 14, PKN Orlando Vol. 6, and PKN Portsmouth Vol. 11 (above), which continues that city's elemental theme for the year (first was fire). And speaking of Portsmouth, here's a great video that was produced after the city's Vol. 10, that acts as a peek at that event, as well as a teaser for the upcoming Vol. 11: Photos and report What does a crowd of 4000 look like? It looks like what you see pictured above, from last week's PKN Tel Aviv Vol. 13 -- and there are more photos to see in this Flickr photoset. Also, we have the following report from PKN Tel Aviv organizer Anat Safran:We had another great PKN here at Tel Aviv, with 4000 people in the house. As usual the demand for tickets was huge and we were sold out in minutes... Me and my partner Itay were happy to host 9 presenters, all great and crazy, just the way we love them. We started the evening with a presentation by Liat Segal, who is running a studio for art and technology. Her projects are always fun and beautiful and involve music, paint and robots. Than came on stage Ofer Grunewald who is a young Bonsai artist. He shared his passion and explained the satisfaction of sculpting with a living material as trees. Mushon Zer Aviv (designer) and his wife Galia Ofri (painter) talked about their first common project that aims to illustrate wikipedia. With great drawings for esoteric articles and some very interesting questions about sharing knowledge -- these were a fascinating 6 minutes and 40 seconds. Artist and representative of the slow food movement in Israel, Rafram Hadad took us on a lovely journey in his different fields of creation, mixing visual arts and food in all middle eastern countries. A whole different experience was the one offered by brain researcher Moran Cerf, who is working in a very special lab in L.A. where experiments are made on live human brains. He can map the brain and than "read" one's thoughts or even allow handicapped people to control a robotic arm with their thoughts. Than came Ohad Zlotnik, a graduate student in visual arts, who presented his very smart project of 3D typography, with Hebrew letters that became real objects. Daniel Dover is a street artist who told us his short and so funny history trying to fit in the world of design, and what has finally brought him to do his street art interventions. Oded Ezer is a well known typographer who has presented his work in the first Tel Aviv PKN back on 2007. We were happy to invite him once again and discover his super intelligent projects. Oded told us about a typographic tattoo project, a graphic flag project, a social Skype-typo project, and more. The last show of the evening was by director Yair Kedar, who presented his current project, a documentary about Yona Wollach, one of Israel's most well known poet. His presentation ended with a live song by local singer Karolina whose big warm voice filled all our hearts with joy and emotions, with anticipation for our next PKN.Calendar Tonight (June 4) you'll want to catch PKN Stockholm Vol. 34, which we hear is going to be quite the event. Tomorrow, PKNs are happening in the following cities: PKN Louisville Vol. 8, PKN Chicago Vol. 22, and PKN Sydney Vol. 21. Please note that the PKN Hong Kong Vol. 12 that was scheduled for tomorrow has been postponed.
Architectural Projects and a Building Project by Architecture Students
John Weeden kicks off his presentation (from PKN Memphis Vol. 1) with a logo and the latin for "life is short," which then leads into a virtual tour of some of his favorite installations and architectural projects. Students from Kanto Gakuin University do a group presentation (in Japanese, from PKN Tokyo Vol. 94) about a building project and workshop they undertook over the past year.
Comparing the US to the UK and Projects for Alternative Living
For this presentation (from PKN Pittsfield Vol. 1), let David Hyde take you on a tongue-in-cheek comparative tour of the US and the UK -- expect stereotypes galore, and a good laugh. Redesigna is a collaboration of different projects in Augsburg -- each of these projects focuses on alternative living. This presentation (in German, from PKN Augsburg Vol. 1) shows a variety of recycled and upcycled projects created by Doris Leitner.
Nacho Zamora's 'Solar Artwork' Project and Learning the Bavarian Dialect
Nacho Zamora is a Spanish researcher working on a project called “Solar Artwork," a new kind of artistic creation that makes use of new solar-powered technologies, integrating them into public art and urban landscape projects. In his presentation (from PKN Dubai Vol. 11), he proposes to bring "Solar Artwork" to Dubai. With Dubai's urban nature and unlimited sunshine, it is the perfect candidate for Solar Artwork. Time for a language lesson. In this presentation (in German, from PKN Regensburg Vol. 2), Stephan Rockinger offers a very friendly introduction to the Bavarian dialect.
Orée is a maker of beautiful wooden keyboards, and at next week's Vol. 103, Yasunobu Takata will be on hand to tell the story of how such a product came about.南フランスのデザイン機器会社「Orée」の高田泰伸さんが自然のマテリアルと最新技術を融合させて作成される「温かみのあるITハードウェア」について発表してくださいます。
Causes and Effects
In today's "Presentation of the Day" -- "Causes and Effects" -- designer Robert L. Peters uses various examples of design used to pass on a message or critique a particular world problem, using it as a call to arms, inviting everyone to choose their cause and do something about it. It was recorded at PKN Winnipeg Vol. 7.
Projects Monetization Problems
Yuriy Lozinsky, GOSPay Managing Partner, and Exigen Services Delivery Director, in the spirit of D'Artagnan with a sparkling and subtle humor talked about the problems with projects monetization on PKN Dnipropetrovsk IT::Start-up Vol. 9. The performance was in the spirit of European top management speaches, that are able to make reports simultaneously on a very serious topics and to discuss everyday life topical problems. And that had Yuriy Lozinsky, the word "gamification", "cases", monetization of the office, discussion about relevant advertising was perfectly combined with the Musketeers jokes à la "But, thank God, have friends, And, thank God, the friends have a sword" and "monetization of the project - it's like a corvette - taxi, pass the fare!".
