The Àdùnní Chair by, Nigerian Furniture Brand,  Ilé-Ilà narrates traditional African aesthetics through minimalist elegance.

Àdùnní (meaning ‘daughter of the sweet one’ in Yoruba), is a celebration of African Modernism. The chair’s frame is made from Nigerian teak wood and is upholstered in two styles of the indigenous Yoruba textile Asò-oké. The front bears Asò-oké Gboro-gidi (solid) and behind Asò-oké Onja-wú ati iho (perforated), both hand-loomed in Nigeria.

The thoughtful material choices of the chair come together to stage a celebration of culture and art through furniture. The Àdùnní Chair is available in seven vibrant colours, each with a matching footstool. The colours are pupa féré (pink), osàn (orange), pón (yellow), pupa (red), elésè àlùkò (purple), ewé (green) and búlúù (blue).

Ilé-Ilà, which means House of Lines, is a lifestyle furniture line designed and handmade in Lagos, Nigeria. The brand focuses on period-conscious furniture with contemporary African content. Ilé-Ilà was created by Tosin Oshinowo.  As an Architect, she has a natural affinity towards product design. She is particularly interested in the functionality of chairs, but also placing them in a Nigerian-African identity context. Unlike her minimalist approach to drchiteture, which often uses mute colours, her furniture design aesthetic is a bright explosion of colour.
