The FALOMO collection offers a fresh approach to an postcolonial era during which new African nations expressed their new found confidence and pride through the creation of a new style of architecture. – Eva Sonaike
In paying homage to this era five designs in two-colourways making up the Falomo collection feature geometrical patterns and continuous lines that represent movement, development, and progress. Odi leads the collection with its parallel zig-zag design representing the fences and iron gates that can still be seen throughout West Africa; Ala represents bridging the gap between the old and the new, whilst Aluro reinterprets of the structure of concrete facades; Okuta evokes the stark texture of concrete used in Tropical Modernist buildings; and Iri takes its inspiration from the grid approach to urban planning prevalent in mid-century urban West Africa. In addition to being presented on luxurious interior and personal furnishings, the collection also sees the introduction of lampshades.
Perfect for bringing a spring infused African interior design style into your home.
