me myself & i: Yinka

We are not one thing.
We are complex creatures.
Weird, yep.
But wonderful.
Empowered beings.
Constantly evolving.
The ones with the stories.
Or not.

Eyewear for every side of you.

As a London based designer and artist, Yinka specialises in up-cycling vintage furniture. As a first generation British Nigerian, he is deeply inspired by traditional Nigerian parables, and his furniture takes on new meanings depending on how it is used or positioned. His work colourfully plays with the relationship between function and form.
Director: Bafic
