Today’s presentations were all part of a “Sweden in Style” PechaKucha session held last week at the SuperDeluxe 10th anniversary party during Tokyo Designers Week 2012. SDLX is were the first PechaKucha Night was held, and the Tokyo series continues to be held there on a monthly basis.

Anton Alvarez introduces us to the Tread Wrapping Machine. Katrin Greiling shares some of her wonderful works inspired by recent travels. Gustaf Kjellin (of Don’t Feed the Swedes) shares fond memories of SuperDeluxe and of his Tokyo adventures. Tove Thambert gives a tour of her work.
