Interior Design in Florence
BY JURI FAVILLI
@ VOL 1
ON MAR 02, 2012
In this presentation, Juri Favilli covers an architectural renovation project for a flat in the middle of Florence's old town. The concept was to have new living areas in which most of the home's functions were placed in the walls. You end up with a living space with almost no furniture, which answered the client's request of wanting an "ordered home." (in Italian)
International Art & Design Festival 2014
BY KRISTJANA S WILLIAMS
@ VOL 1
ON JUL 25, 2014
Icelandic born artist Kristjana S Williams studied graphic design and illustration at Central St Martins and quickly gained critical acclaim as Creative Director of Beyond the Valley for 8 years.
In 2012, Kristjana S Williams Studio began creating fne art pieces, art prints and furniture.
The studio’s latest project presented a one of a kind collaborative audio-scape print journey at the spectacular Shanghai Exhibition Centre. Flying spirits were draped in beautiful traditional Chinese silk robes printed with Kristjana’s signature intricate art works, the masks are incredibly delicate hand paper-cut sculptures which crown each creature. The intrigued masked spirits followed the audience intertwining around the bamboo forest with mystical allure. Amongst the atmospheric surroundings, the creatures enticed visitors into listening to their unique, individual sounds through suspended Momentum headphones by German audio company, Sennheiser.
Previously in 2011 Kristjana S Williams and Beyond the Valley presented an interactive print journey at the V&A during London Design Festival, a show inspired by an interest in the way new technologies can be used in interiors and fashion design.
The illustrations juxtapose strong graphic lines with intricate victorian engravings creating incredibly striking and unique art work. Comprising of very intricate collages of material that have been collected from victorian engravings, photographs taken, found objects and real leafs and twigs.
Inspiration lies heavily with layering nature upon nature and ‘the symmetry in all things living’ which stems from the artists childhood in Iceland. When growing up the artist found nature there stark and unforgiving. Never seeing trees or colourful butterfies or exotic fowers – everything seemed grey. Now in retrospect, feels the complete opposite as though the colours and landscape are like nowhere else in the world. Each piece created by the artist is it’s own universe of botanicals, atmosphere and animals, each born and grown from the things that have inspired her since being a child in Iceland.
Williams’ work has become well known throughout the industry, 2013 saw the studio Highly Commended for ‘Best Use of Colour’ at the Dulux Colour Awards. In 2014 Kristjana has already won a D&AD award, a New York Festivals Grand Prix & First Prize and lastly shortlisted for the Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity.

PKN Prague Vol. 12
We always get very interesting reports from Prague, and the latest one, for PechaKucha Night Vol. 12, certainly follows that trend. That city's organizer Jana Kostelecka sent us the following, written by Adam Gebrian. April 16th 2009, PechaKucha Night in Prague, volume 12, overcrowded as usual -- I would have never believed you could regularly fit more than 370 people inside a cinema with a maximum capacity of 336 (don’t tell the authorities, especially the fire-brigade control). As usual, we have seen 14 presentations, every single one very funny -- a bit too much for my own taste, but that could have been influenced by the fact that I came to see PKNP directly from a funeral of a friend. But a few questions have been omnipresent: What is more important, content or form? Could you be boring but good? Should you try to be funny, especially when the others are, and the audience is having good time? How hard is it not to please the public? Should you try to react to your colleague’s presentations which precede you? (My personal advice: No!) A few days afterwards, I clearly remember 6 of the 14 presentations (a sign of certain quality). Here they are: Will You Buy our Catalogue? Pode Bal The famous artistic trio, which have single-handedly established political art in Czech Republic with their year 2000 exhibition ”Malík urvi” (first three slides), with 36 portraits of successful public figures and politicians -- accidentally, also important persons during the communist regime. Personally, I always prefer presentations from one single person (if you make a mistake, there is no one to help you out, and that takes a certain courage), but this trio was perfect. Well balanced sense of humour, with precise formulations, and a serious effort to sell their recently published catalogue. Outer Space Technology for a Village Restaurant Michal Kutálek (Next Level studio) Young architect, started by showing his visions for new livable complexes in outer space using advanced computer technologies (he has been awarded several prizes for his efforts), but it took just eight slides, and we have been inside of small interiors in his hometown (Staré Město) in South Moravia, a “city” of 8000 inhabitants. We are in a small regular room (still under construction) created in the traditional way (bricks and stones of different sizes and colours). Does it mean he has forgotten his vision and complex shapes? No, not by chance. On the other hand, he has been able to realize the first parametric design in Czech Republic. Interior of a bar with restaurant. Next nine slides are here to prove it. Slick white ceilings, strange wall colours, design chairs. And the biggest surprise is still yet to come. Picture no. 18. The exterior of the bar. You have hardly seen something more traditional than this. You suddenly realize the challenge of building this -- in here. It would have been difficult to do it in our capital, Prague, but in this village? Insane. Good luck with other projects. Mystification or even Better? kunstWerk The end of the first half is always important. If it’s not good, it can destroy all previous presentations. But this was clearly not the case for the duo kunstWerk. It’s hard to understand if we are attending clever mystification, or even more clever reality. The punch line is coming from Joseph Beuys -- “every man is an artist” -- and the next 19 slides are here to prove it. Showing the work of an unknown person. Weird common life objects, but all of them with certain beauty, poetics. Except one, perfectly commented: “Just one time in his life, he strived to be an artist, by creating this piece (picture no. 15) -- metal flower out of used beer bottle caps. It’s precisely the moment when he stopped being an artist.” The ending is well prepared: “Is it possible to be an artist and not know about it?” Of course. But here is a bigger question: “Is it possible to be an artist and not know about it?” That’s a tough one. Kill the Format Adéla Svobodová I don’t like attempts at destroying the 20x20 format (numbering pages, showing almost the same picture twice, animation gifs, etc.), but this time it worked out. Every next slide had been placed over the previous one, without covering it entirely. Very nice idea, and so was the work of Adéla Svobodová (film festival posters, book covers, art installations, drawings). The Surprise of the Night Jiří Příhoda The giant square in the sea, fallen tree struck by lightning, giant art installations, artificial ocean instead of gallery ceiling -- so you enter inside and find yourself underneath sea level (made by styrodur), part of the biggest war cannon ever made, “destroyed” gallery. “I have left just two spaces, one to get in, and the other one to get out. Hah, hah.” Some of the works are older than twenty years. Who the hell is this guy? The leader of monumental work studio at Art Academy in Prague? I loved it. The Best at Last The ending of the night is even more important than the ending of the first half. It can make the evening, or not. For the first time during my five visits, it didn’t end well. So I am not going to write about the real ending, but will pick up my own choice: David Černý The always young (45 years :))) provocative rebel without cause, the author of the art A-bomb of the year, "Entropa" -- fictitious collaboration of 27 young European artists (made just by himself), which still represents the presidency of Czech Republic over EU in Brussels. This time, he showed us a less known part of his personality. Perfectly prepared, precise, showing not only his beautiful unrealized projects, but also his brain-child, "Meet factory," a place for exhibitions, cultural projects, meetings, discussions, and presentations. It was the paramount of the evening, without a doubt. Within the context of the night, he seemed to be the most adult, conservative (this is meant positively!), and wise-cracking. The unrealized giant red skull inside the market hall (pictures 3 and 4) might prove me wrong, but I still mean it. 19 slides of his own work, and then the message to everybody in the audience: Fuck the Czech Communist Party! Big applause. The next PKNP will happen on the 18th of June, and I am going to be there.

Vol 10 Pecha Kucha Night 'HOME'
London is back up and running at full steam ahead into 2016. We are now up to Volume 10! For Volume 10 we have adopted a theme - ‘Home’, which the speakers will have to get their tongues round. What does ‘Home’ mean to them from a personal perspective. ‘Home’ - a place where you long to go back to, longed to leave. Is it house, a yurt, a caravan or are you just a long way away from it. It is the one global thing we all share, no matter what our race, income or religion, we all want a place we can call ‘Home’. Hosting this brilliant night is The Geffrye. A good choice we think, as that is exactly what the museum sets out to do, explore the home from 1600 to now. You never know quite where you’re going with a PechaKucha night, which is all part of the format, so come and have a couple of drinks grab a chair and settle in.

Let's Talk About Food
Yes lets. Talk about food. Because it is July which is fast becoming one of Gisborne's calendar highlights with the wonderful GIZZY FOOD MONTH. This month locals will enjoy a long, very long, lunch at a local brewery, a huge degustation event at a French Restaurant, a charity lunch with Ben Bayly and a themed Pecha Kucha night to be held right on the beach front at Waikanae Surf Club. Generally we considered themed PK nights to be too much of a good thing with potential to lean toward that shady place - death by powerpoint. But, who doesn't love food. surely, we thought to ourselves, there must be some amazing foodies around the town and we can quitely tell you in advance tht there is some real talent out there. This is no tv cook off, we have a nutritionist, coffee afficiandos, a chef, a honey man, the master of sourdough and who knew we have a talented food stylist living in Gisborne. Get along and check it out and check out the new Surf Club building at the end of Grey Street. Entry is at the back of the building and up a flight of stairs. See you Friday at 5.30pm for a 6.00pm start. Seating is limited so grab a ticket from the smashing refurbished Interiors at Ballance St Village and don't risk missing out.
