Cheick Diallo – Designing Social Change / TALK (EN)

Cheick Diallo studied architecture and design in France and today works as a designer in France and Mali. In their materiality and formal language, his furniture and objects call into question the perception of African design. In cooperation with Design Academy Eindhoven, Diallo is presently working on introducing a study programme in the field of design in Mali. In his talk, he will address the objectives of this project as well as his own work and current developments in African design. Free admission
