Yinka Ilori, a young furniture designer who re-works old pieces to give them a fresh spin, is showing a solo exhibit at the Old Shoreditch Station. The installation, called ‘It Started With A Parable’, uses Nigerian stories to re-imagine furniture with a sense of humour. The exhibit is co-curated by Look Like Love, an organization that nurtures young designers, and Jaguarshoes Collective has donated all of their furniture so Ilori will demonstrate live how he up-cycles tired pieces. And if you’re not the crafty type to re-work your own furniture, the original Ilori works will be also be up for sale.
