Design Cream? Quèsaco? An event presenting the crème de la crème of designers and architects, of course! And who says prestigious casting, says choice format. On Thursday, March 26, 2018, ten creators, gathered for the Materials & Light fair, thus presented their creations, inspirations and projects in an atypical way in 20 images, projected 20 seconds apart. Zoom on the universe of Samuel Accoceberry.
The Design Cream nights, designed by Benjamin Girard from the Design Project agency, aim to offer a scene to the cream of the cream of creators to present their projects to a wide audience, in a format specific, rhythmic and concise, and in a relaxed atmosphere. What ensure a global success at these gatherings! Everything fits in the format, named Pecha Kucha: the guests have 20 slides, shown during 20 seconds each, and which scroll automatically; either 6 minutes and 40 seconds for each of them. No blah-blah: the various speakers expose here the essence of their achievements.
