Talk by the Designer of Bono’s Laser Jacket: Moritz Waldemeyer
A couple of months ago, I made a presentation to Pecha Kucha about My Adventures in General Admission. Upon reminiscing, I came across this Pecha Kucha talk by Moritz Waldemeyer – the designer of Bono’s laser jacket used during the 360° tour. According to the Pecha Kucha website:
Moritz wowed us with his amazing designs — including a jacket for Bono for the latest U2 concert tour and a new coffee cum laser dancing table for Wallpaper, an exclusive here as the magazine is not out yet!
Widely recognised as one of the most innovative and exciting designers of his generation, Waldemeyer, aged 34, was born in East Germany. He moved to London thirteen years ago where he trained as an engineer at Kings College and completed his Masters degree in 2001. Since then, he has collaborated with many of the world’s top architects and fashion designers including Ron Arad, Zaha Hadid and Hussein Chalayan. His work is a fusion of technology, art, fashion and design.
