About this Event
Nifemi Marcus-Bello is an award-winning designer known for his community-led, ethnographic-conscious approach, which focuses on the exploitation of materials to pursue new forms and typologies. Marcus-Bello creates truly unique products, forms, and experiences while leaning on a keen interest in manufacturing, production availability, habits, and history. Based in Lagos, Nigeria, he uses research-driven practices to archive and document contemporary, anonymously designed objects across West Africa with grants from the Graham Foundation, the Prince Claus Fund, and more. He has also received numerous awards, including the Wallpaper Magazine Life Enhancer of the Year Award, The Hublot Design Prize, and Monocle Magazine’s Emerging Designer of the Year award.
