VOL 19

March 27, 2019
@ HASSELL Studio

We're baaaack!

After a bit of a hiatus, PKNLDN is back and we're heading to one of our favorite spots to host 20x20!

Ok, first up what is a PechaKucha night? Originating in Japan, it is a fast and fabulous night of individual presentations, but there is a rule... nobody can speak for more than 6 minutes and 40 seconds, which means that you really can’t afford to be boring. Each speaker will show 20 images and talk about each image for 20 seconds.

​Today the event has evolved to cover a range of topical societal issues, from diverse perspectives and is presented in over 1000 cities around the world.

​What kind of things do people talk about? Literally anything that people think worth sharing including a personal story, an idea, a project, a passion, interesting snaps and experiences from your last adventure, these are just a few examples.

PechaKucha presentations uncover the unexpected -- unexpected talent, unexpected ideas. Some PechaKuchas tell great stories about a project or a trip. Some are incredibly personal, some are incredibly funny, but all are very different, and they turn each PechaKucha event into “a box of chocolates”.

What can I expect from PechaKucha x HASSELL? After the success of several PechaKucha X HASSELL collaborations in 2017 the teams are back together to bring you another wonderful evening of inspiring and unique speakers.

Our friends from Corona are back on board too to make sure no one in the studio will be without a cold beer in their hands throughout the night!

So why would you not come down to the HASSELL studio in Shoreditch to listen to 6 speakers talk about all kinds of wonderful things. There are a limited number of tickets for this event, so be sure to book today!

Stay tuned for information about speakers

The importance of understanding WHO you are designing for

@ VOL 19 ON MAR 27, 2019

At the 17th instalment of PechaKucha London at the amazing design studio HASSELL, Nathan shared with the audience an important lesson that he has learnt himself through years of designing, that to truly know WHO you are designing for you need to dive deep and understand who they are - as everything not all is always as it seems.....

Photography as image and process

@ VOL 19 ON MAR 27, 2019

At the 17th instalment of PechaKucha London, Adam told us all a standout story showcasing his amazing images of an untrained architect's (i.e. a normal person) unique approach to architecture. 

Adam uses his photography to convey how an image is something between document and process. And what a fine job of it he does!

Designing for social purpose

@ VOL 19 ON MAR 27, 2019

At the 17th instalment of London PechaKucha at the lovely HASSELL design studio, Tayo used her time up front to share with the audience a heartfelt tale of her approach to design. Design should be about delivering solutions with humans at the heart.

Fair to say Tayo stole the audiences heart!

Erratum - a range of beautiful useless products

@ VOL 19 ON MAR 27, 2019

At the 17th instalment of PechaKucha London at the amazing design studio HASSELL, Jeremy used his 6 minutes and 40 seconds to great effect by sharing with the crowd the story behind his "unique" and "useless" objects produced by manufacturers around the world, under instruction from Jeremy to insert errors into the designs.

This lucky PechaKucha audience was in stitches of laughter from start to finish!
