Nigerian designer builds contemporary African furniture brand

Lani Adeoye is putting finishing touches on a sculpture at a studio in Lagos. Her latest design is a floor lamp dubbed ‘Sisi Eko’ inspired by a phrase in Yoruba slang, commonly used to refer to a trendy woman living in the city.

Adeoye is the brain behind Studio Lani, a boutique product design brand that incorporates traditional African designs into functional furniture and interior designs.

The interior architect trained in New York, and started making contemporary African pieces in 2013. She says she wants to take advantage of opportunities in the sector to create a niche for herself.

The 30-year-old designer’s work ranges from indoor to outdoor furniture, lighting fixtures and other interior decor pieces.
