Design Luminaries – In Conversation series with The Design Museum

ICCI and Kent School of Architecture & Design are partnering with The Design Museum in a new series of conversations with eminent and inspirational designers.

The first event will feature Yinka Ilora on Tuesday 24 January, 18:30 – 19:40, livestream in Marlowe Lecture Theatre 1.

Yinka Ilori’s bold visual aesthetic draws on his British-Nigerian heritage and injects vivid colour and dynamic geometries into projects as diverse as architecture, furniture, and fashion.

Ilori’s work represents a commitment to design that promotes joyful optimism and advocates for the next generation.

Reflecting on works in Parable for Happiness, currently on display at the Design Museum, London, Ilori and the curator Priya Khanchandani unpack his distinctive visual identity.

Discussing the relationship between form and function, art and design, the pair explore methods for inspiring creativity and hope.
