PKN Charleston Vol. 3 in Style
You've already had a peek at last week's PechaKucha Night in Charleston Vol. 3, held outdoors, and now's your chance to see some video of the event, courtesy of Charleston Magazine. It was put together by the style editor, so yes, there's a heavy focus on what people are wearing.

Swedish Style 2009
Today's presentation comes courtesy of the one and only Ewa Kumlin, founder of Swedish Style in Tokyo, who talks us through the event's history -- this year was Swedish Style's 10th anniversary. Ewa is Managing Director of Svensk Form, founder of Swedish Style in Tokyo now celebrating 10 years and the organizer of PechaKucha Nights in Stockholm. Ewa and Swedish Style have done so much to promote cultural exchange between Japan and Sweden -- and shows what positive energy can do in the world, here's to another 10 years. Ewa Power for Ever! The presentation was part of a special Swedish Style edition of PechaKucha Night at SuperDeluxe during Tokyo Design Week -- all of the presentations from that night's event are now up, and accessible from this page.
Today's presentation was recorded during the special edition "Swedish Style x PechaKucha Night" event held earlier this year during Tokyo Design Week, and features artist and designer Asa Jungnelius walking us through some of her projects. Åsa is a much talked about contemporary Swedish glass designer, interested in what is considered genuine or fake and how the value of an object is created. She often uses stereotypes as a language and challenge their conventional meaning.

No Picnic is a successful industrial design company that has grown from 2 to 50 since its start in 1993. Their latest product, "Pacemaker," is revolutionizing the world of DJ-ing.
PechaKucha Workshop with the Swedish Police
Last week Jesper Larsson, PechaKucha ambassador of Gothenburg traveled to Stockholm together with "struktör" David Stiernholm to arrange a PechaKucha workshop with the Swedish Police. The participants from the Swedish National Police Board were first given an introduction lecture about PechaKucha and the 20x20 format, along with tips and ideas on how to find images – legally of course – and how to go about creating and preparing a presentation. They then had only an hour to prepare their own presentations on subjects relating to their respective work, after which the presentations were presented to the entire group. Despite the short time frame we got to experience thoughtful, creative, useful and fun presentations. This both showed how much a group of committed people are able to do in only an hour, as well as the power of the 20x20 format. And the participants were also happy about the workshop. In a follow-up email our contact person wrote: "Many of us got really inspired by the PechaKucha workshop. A colleague went straight home and remade two presentations she was giving the following week." Bonus: After the workshop we also got to check out the police archive with old police cars and equipment. An old Porsche 911 police car. A promotional poster for the Sig Sauer pistol used by the Swedish police. Old ballistics test looking like contemporary pop art Some sort of functional fashion piece that had something to do with handling lead. Below, the PechaKucha storyboard.

Objects in Disguise
Phasmatodea -- commonly known as stick-insects or leaf-bugs -- are an order of insects who blend very well into their surroundings. Swedish designer Tove Thambert was inspired by these animals' ability to convince the viewer that they were seeing something very ordinary, and set out to produce a whole range of "Objects in Disguise". In this edition of "Presentation of the Day" (from Tokyo Designer's Week 2012, as a part of a special "Sweden in Style" PechaKucha event) Thambert discusses the process by which she finds items or accessories that may have a certain social stigma about them. One example she shows is the mirror: this item is something every woman carries in her purse, but most men would not be caught dead with a mirror on his person. For this reason, Tove concocted a mirror that fit the place you might find a pocket-watch on a suit. When her grandfather felt embarassed to walk with a cane, she designed one that looked more similar to something everyone carries about: an umbrella.
The Thread Wrapping Machine
Anton Alvarez is an artist, but he doesn't just create new works of art; he has developed an entirely new method of assembly. In this edition of Presentation of the Day, (from a special PechaKucha "Sweden in Style" event held during Tokyo Designers Week 2012) Alvarez shows off his invention: a large ring-shaped device which wraps polyester threads coated with wet glue around anything fed through the ring while it spins. This technique allows for two objects (he often uses pieces of wood) to be joined while avoiding the use of traditional joints. He has developed a new craft of sorts, and as he says, "I'm a beginner at this, but I'm also the best at it -- there are no other people working at this." His machine grants him freedom from manufacturing institutions and relies heavily on improvisation. Each piece is unique, spontaneous, colorful, and has a sort of dynamic personality about it. At the moment Alvarez has produced mostly furniture, but he hopes to iterate on the scale of his device and push his creations to an architectural level.
