As a Nigerian American designer, I bridge the gap between design, social issues, and sustainability. Through my work, I want to debunk the narrative that design is Eurocentric. The erasure of the functionality of stolen African artifacts is insulting to the historical and cultural impact Black people have had in the design world. I define my personal style as “functional sculptures.”
