"Studio-Lani creates sculptural lighting and furniture pieces, that express an organic rhythm and a sense of visual harmony."
Studio-Lani is a furniture and lighting design studio by Artistic Designer, Lani Adeoye. Driven by conceptual curiosity, human touch, and cultural expression. She uses design as a mediation tool; fusing tradition and modernity, merging Art, Craft & Design; whilst expressing intangible cultural concepts. Studio-Lani is on a journey to redefine heritage whilst creating pieces today for your tomorrow. Lani is not motivated by trends but rather aims to create timeless designs that can be embraced today and celebrated in the future.
Her explorative nature and passion for innovation have taken her to various parts of Nigeria, to learn about almost forgotten craft techniques and she works to extend their use in a contemporary manner. As a result of her immersive process, her designs convey a distinct identity and aura that truly engages the user. Versatile in nature, her designs embody an organic rhythm and inspire a sense of visual harmony.
Prior to studying at Parsons - 'The New School,' Lani was dedicated to her work as a Management and IT Consultant to Fortune Global 100 clients; following her graduation from McGill University, where she earned her Bachelor's degree in Commerce.
