Meet Nigerian Man who designs for Hermès
The Nigerian-American designer’s interests extend way beyond high-end furniture.
Known for his high-end furniture and lighting creations inspired by the hip-hop culture of his Southern California upbringing, Ini Archibong is already one of the most talked-about designers of the last two years.
The 36-year-old’s résumé includes glass-blown floor lamps for
Sé and the CNC-milled marble Erosion collection for Lapicida, in addition to his namesake designs.
And by the time he graduated from art school in Switzerland, where he’s now based, he had already caught the eye of one of the world’s top luxury houses: Hermès tapped the Nigerian-American designer to create an entirely new line of watches, which debuted this year at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie watch fair in Geneva.
