NOW Gallery

Design Salon with Yinka Ilori

Musings from designers and creatives defining London’s multicultural landscape.

Leading practitioners in photography, fashion, art and design will take a seat at a specially designed table to discuss multiculturalism’s influence on London’s unique design DNA.  You are invited to join the discussion.

How can cultural institutions and creative platforms empower a melting pot of creative talent to foster new ideas and accurately reflect a shared identity? Ilori is commissioned to create a new series of chairs for Salon and will also present Not all that Glitters is Gold; an installation that invites the audience to choose a seat instinctively. These chairs aren’t what they seem- who will choose aesthetics, comfort or functionality?

LIVE Music by Ojerime and a special late view of Walala x Play.
DJs Reprezent FM.
Drinks and Nigerian Tapas Chukus London.


Wale Adeyemi, Fashion designer, CEO B-Side.

Ruth Ossai, Photographer who captures narratives from Nigeria and the African diaspora.

Terence Sambo, Casting Director, Stylist & Fashion Editor at PAUSE Mag.

Yinka Ilori, London based designer. He specialises in up-cycling vintage furniture, inspired by the traditional Nigerian parables and African fabrics that surrounded him as child.

Moderated by Helen Jennings, Editorial director and co-founder of Nataal, the new global media brand celebrating contemporary African fashion, arts and culture.
