Tola Ojuolape founder of Distill2710 designed and curated a pop up interior space for gathering, community collaboration & recharging in the midst of the fair, an immersive space showcasing & displaying blue & indigo hues inspired by the unique colours in Yoruba adire cloth in a contemporary manner.
Distill designed the interior and full branding design for the pop up and also collaborated with Nigerian Tapas brand Chuku’s for a unique street food experience for the duration of the fair.
Distill looked to the craftsmanship of cloth as a backdrop and source of inspiration with influences from the works of Nigerian Art Pioneer & Artist Chief Nike Okundaye.
The tradition of using indigo for dyeing cloth is thought to be at least a thousand years old in West Africa. For this edition, we are also supported by leading furniture brands such as Verpan, Fritz Hansen & La Palma & Established & sons to enhance collaboration and accentuate the beauty and uniqueness of African art in Diaspora.
