Àdùnní (meaning ‘daughter of the sweet one’ in Yoruba), is a celebration of African Modernism and to compliment the outlook and celebrate this Art piece. Our cultural excellence aligned with the works of the multi-talented, miss Kedike @chidinmaekile who was our muse for the shoot.
This piece of Art is proudly Nigerian hence why the chair’s frame is made from Nigerian teak wood and is upholstered in two styles of the indigenous Yoruba textile Asò-oké. The front bears Asò-oké Gboro-gidi (solid) and behind Asò-oké Onja-wú ati iho (perforated), both hand-loomed in Nigeria.
The Àdùnní Chair from #Ilé-Ila available is in seven vibrant colours, each with a matching footstool. The colours are pupa féré (pink), osàn (orange), pón (yellow), pupa (red), elésè àlùkò (purple), ewé (green) and búlúù (blue)
Ile ila is founded by @tosin.oshinowo (Shaku Shaku learner) and photography by @emmanueloyeleke (another shaku shaku learner)
