Kohler India celebrated its 10th year of Pecha Kucha event on 23rd September 2022 this year in New Delhi, attended by the top names of the A&D Community.
Kohler India started its first Pecha Kucha in the year 2013 as an initiative to provide a platform to some of the top architects to share their thoughts and experiences on various design-related topics like Wanderlust – Creativity inspired by Travel, Eves- Even to Uneven, etc.
Every year the event is celebrated across major cities of India to bring together the architect and designer community while indulging in thought-provoking conversations. The style has been inspired by the Japanese Pecha Kucha format of presenting 20 slides in 20 seconds each.
This year the topic for Pecha Kucha is – ‘Design- Then & Now’ taking inspiration from how design has evolved from past to present. Design trends are fluid and over the years have changed, evolved and at times circled back from where they had started with many nuances, revamps, and renewals along the way.
The eventful evening started with Mr. Parveen Gupta, Head of Marketing at Kohler India, where he showcased that the core of any design is to delight consumers through an emotional connect.
The concept of design has changed over the years, not only in architecture but in every facet of life. Many external factors have impacted design changes and some of the recent ones have really made us rethink design & how it needs to evolve sustainably in the future. It’s everyone’s fiduciary responsibility to create impactful designs for the ‘Now’ along with handing over an appreciable ‘Then’ to the next generation.
This event was followed by some of the most renowned and wonderful architects such as Ashmit Singh Alag (Transform Design), Pooja Bihani (Spaces & Design), Priyanka Khanna (42mm), Anand Sharma (Design forum International), and Mitu Mathur (Gian P Mathur). They expressed diverse interpretations of how design has evolved and how they look at the various aspects of design in “Now “and “Then”.
On 29th July 2022, Kohler India celebrated its first round of 10th year of Pecha Kucha event in Mumbai at Opa Kipos, Worli. The event was a huge success, attended by 110 architects based out of Mumbai, Ahmedabad & Pune.
