BY SO+BA DESIGN
@ SWISS PECHAKUCHA NIGHT ON FEB 07, 2014

So+Ba, a design studio in Tokyo, has an understanding of cross-cultural communication and a strong sense of social and political ideals that they enjoy incorporating into their works. Listen as they talk about their past and present projects that they hope will inspire their surrounding community to think differently and encourage them to voice their opinions.
