Ogunseinde‚ 41‚ who studied architecture at University College London‚ brings her minimalist aesthetic to products inspired by her childhood in Ibadan‚ Nigeria. 

“My designs are full of the cultural nuances I grew up with.”

“The rawness of the forms evokes a deeper connection to Yoruba culture and values that I’m seeking to preserve,” she adds.

Recently‚ the brand has been expanding its Egungun collection‚ inspired by masked figures in Yoruba lore. The pieces‚ originally designed as wooden keepsakes‚ have evolved into a series of functional objects‚ including lamps and shelves.
