Today’s presentations were all part of our special Tokyo Designers Week 2012 edition of PKN Tokyo (Vol. 96), held at Meiji-Jingu Gaien this past Wednesday, inside the TDW Dome.

Known for his award-winning art direction and branding projects, Taku Satoh is the founder of Taku Satoh Design Office, and has been wowing design lovers with his innovative and often mesmerizing visual sense. In his presentation (in Japanese), he also talks about the new “Design Museum Japan” initiative.

Architect and designer Eero Koivisto is co-founder of Claesson Koivisto Rune in Stockholm, a studio that started in architecture, but quickly made its mark as a multi-disciplinary company. Here, he talks about a passon of his: the Delorean.

Heineken’s design director Mark van Iterson shares his vision for design, and invites everyone to help shape the future of Heineken’s bottle design, as part of the company’s “Remix Our Future” competition.

Today’s addition to the Tumblr blog is the poster for PKN Bucharest Vol. 10 (pictured above), that was held last night — you’ll find the full list of presenters with links on the official event page.

PKN Buenos Aires Vol. 27 was held this past Tuesday, and here’s a great gallery of photos from the event, to give you a taste of the night that was. Above, a panoramic shot of the crowd and stage, and kicking off the event by showing the poster image.

The weekend starts tonight (November 2) with these four events: PKN New Plymouth Vol. 6, PKN Plzen Vol. 3, PKN Loviisa Vol. 6, and PKN Sarajevo Vol. 3. On Saturday there’s PKN Springfield, MO Vol. 8, PKN Guimaraes Vol. 4, and PKN Sarajevo Vol. 4, and then on Sunday it’s PKN Dunsborough Vol. 6 and PKN Perth Vol. 11.
