London-based interior architect, designer and artist Mimi Shodeinde has created a new range of beautiful contemporary homeware.
The Okuta Collection from MIMINAT Designs, which offers a fusion of modern European and African art-meets-design, includes a tea set, pitcher, decanter and wine glasses, platter and cheese board. The pieces are sourced and handmade in Portugal, with the mouth-blown glass elements created in Czech Republic.
Inspired by ancient Yoruba stone murals, the range uses a combination of wood, brass, glass, ceramic and gold leaf to explore the organic and natural forms of late 14th century Yoruba design.
The collection will be available online from July 2018. Contact Mimi for more information.
