Event description


Evenings at the Loft is LA's design salon, a quarterly speaker series based around central themes and casual conversation.

Join us for a special Evenings at the Loft featuring London’s own, designer, Cennydd Bowles who has written a book on the topic of design ethics, Future Ethics.

This event will feature a keynote by Cennydd, sharing his passion and perspective on the topic of Design Ethics.

We’ll explore some of the concepts featured in his book. Ideas like:

• What are the ethical implications of our work with the coming era of connected smart technologies, such as AI, autonomous vehicles, and the Internet of Things.
• Are we as an Industry prepared to answer some difficult ethical questions?
• How can we reverse the trend and start to build trust: a type of trust that the tech industry has yet to fully earn?

Join us for an evening where we aim to illuminate these ethical questions of emerging technologies, as well as the challenges we are facing to create more thoughtful, positive products for future generations.


Cennydd Bowles will present a keynote talk about the ethics of emerging technology. His thoughts on the topic have been quoted in The Guardian, Ars Technica, The Daily Telegraph, Süddeutsche Zeitung, and Forbes. Cennydd’s fifteen-year career includes being a design manager at Twitter and consulting for clients such as the BBC, Samsung, WWF and Ford

Our hosts for the night are Chris Chandler, Product Strategy Director, Philosophie, and Arturo Perez, CEO, Kluge Interactive. The dynamic duo will bookend the evening first with a big announcement of a project they are collaborating on and then moderating the post-keynote discussion.

As always, we will have an assortment of food and specialty cocktails.
