Modern African Inspired

Perhaps the most challenging aspect of a designer’s contribution to the project is helping define the style of the space. While words such as “contemporary,” “traditional,” “western,” “shabby chic,” “Paris flea market” are often used, seldom does the description “African modern” enter the conversation.  Typically defined in small chunks, the notion  of an entire room or even an entire home is seldom placed in the client’s consciousness.

Stephen Burks of Readmade Projects of Brooklyn hopes to change this with his M’Afrique exhibition, featuring the work of  furniture designer Moroso along with photographers and textile and product designers present a dramatic, tangible impression of modern African inspired design.
