Reinterpreting their heritage through a fresh lens, these inventive artists are challenging and changing preconceived perspectives of African design.
Using new forms, provocative textures, natural materials and rich colours, designers from Africa are pioneering new frontiers of creative expression. Their bold ideas are defining a captivating new aesthetic that captures the style and soul of contemporary Africa: imaginative, energetic, cosmopolitan, expressive, sensual, proud and principled.
