Among the stands of the SaloneSatellite, the one of Studio Lani, founded by Lani Adeoye, could not be overlooked. A collection of furniture pieces with harmonious but provocative lines, which outline contemporary forms, but which, at the same time, refers to African traditions and cultures. A wise use of materials and an original point of view.
In fact, it’s with one of the products on display, that Lani Adeoye won the 11th edition of the SaloneSatellite Award. The project is called RemX and is a walker that, as the jury stated, is capable of merging “elegance and dignity in a useful object for all. A valid example of contemporary craft that combines local workmanship with global design inspiration.”
Thanks to her analytical background, combined with her curiosity, Lani has a practical and sensitive approach to the context in which she operates. This allows her to re-imagine materials in new dimensions and reinterpret traditional techniques in forward-looking projects.
