Troika talks at Design Museum's Pecha Kucha
The Design Museum is hosting a Pecha Kucha night on Friday 14th of May. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of 'chit chat', Pecha Kucha consists of a series of presentations that involve each participant showing 20 images for 20 seconds each. This evening's event features 14 designers including the nice people from 'It's nice that', Jason Bruges, Morag Myerscough and Dejan Sudjic. Sebastien will chit chat on Troika's behalf creating the soundtrack for 20 slides of Troika's latest adventures in Shanghai.
See you there!
