design/moritz waldemeyer’s laser love

The PechaKucha circus halted in London last Monday and brought a varied – to say the least – bunch of speakers to the stage.  Great concept, speakers get to show 20 slides at a speed of 20 seconds per slide.  Mix this with a friendly atmosphere and cold beer and you have a pleasant night out!

Moritz Waldemeyer’s presentation is online now and worth checking out. His work is a fusion of technology, art, fashion and design. He talked us through projects for clients ranging from the Flos/Starck/Baccarat/Jenny Holzer combo to Wallpaper and U2.  He also worked with A listers Ron Arad and Zaha Hadid and worked on those great mechanical dresses for Hussein Chalayan in 2006.  Find out more on his website.

PechaKucha in the words of founder Mark Dytham (of Klein-Dytham Architects):

PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public.  It has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world, inspiring creatives worldwide. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of “chit chat”, it rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. It’s a format that makes presentations concise, and keeps things moving at a rapid pace.
