The Kofe Club Collection: Uniquely Nigerian Furniture

A ban on foreign furniture imports, limited resources, and limited-manufacturing capabilities became opportunities rather than constraints for Lagos-born product designer Nifemi Marcus-Bello. His latest set of pieces, the Kofe Club Collection, reevaluates these limitations through design with affordability and sustainability at the heart of its ethos.

“The design direction was then translated to each product, giving each piece a unique identity, while still offering a cohesive direction to the overall collection,” he explained. Using simple manufacturing techniques such as wood turning, bending and welding, Marcus-Bello created a ready-to-assemble, uniquely Nigerian perspective on furniture design.
