Designer Yinka Ilori worked with volunteers from social enterprise Restoration Station to create this collection of brightly coloured chairs.
Known for his use of bright colours and exuberant patterns based on traditional African design, British-Nigerian Yinka Ilori encouraged the volunteers to use colour to tell their own personal narratives.
“I made them all choose their own colour palette and then they applied it onto the chair in different patterns,” said Ilori. “It was quite an organic process.”
“Colour can either evoke a positive or a negative memory, so it was nice that I got the positive memories through the design that was projected onto the chairs,” he added. “For me, the project was more about celebration, and about what colour meant to them as individuals.”
