Diallo Design – Cheik Diallo
Cheick Diallo’s impeccable furniture and objects challenge common perceptions of African design with their mix of ancient wisdom and contemporary sensibility. A creative risk-taker Diallo trained as an architect and designer in France, before establishing a studio in his home city. His team of artisans manufacture objects from everyday detritus – from bottle tops to old tyres. Diallo has exhibited at Milan and various international Design Biennales.
