Watch Yinka Ilori Speak About His Work on Zanen TV

Zanen Tv is back again with a new episode of Zanen Exclusives, this time, featuring Nigerian British designer, Yinka Ilori.

Observing a timeline of Yinka’s works, from his debut Parable collection to his more recent installation at Social Media Week Lagos, his ingenuity, passion and wow factor speaks for itself.

He starts of talking about his style, being a combination of two cultures; British and Nigerian….

“I am inspired by people, colours, patterns, languages. And then I try to incorporate all these different elements into a chair or a pattern. I just try to do a narrative for these pieces”

Watching him speak about his background and influences, and juxtaposing it with his works, one would get a better understanding of his creations. Watch and Enjoy.
