Their new 8 piece home collection titled: EKO: Lagos, Nostalgia for the past curiosity about the present is undoubtedly one of the best things we have seen in the lifestyle space this year.
According to the creative director:
‘A stunning 8 piece collection of contemporary homeware and accessories is inspired by the long standing craft and industry of traditional African cultures, the collection seeks to re-imagine past collections of classic Nigerian items and forms while filtering them through a contemporary lens, absorbing elements of traditional culture and fusing it with modern product design.
