Design Week Lagos (DWL) the leading design week on the African continent, is set to hold this year’s edition in Lagos.
Conceived to present and celebrate the best in contemporary African design across categories, while bringing international field leaders and visitors to experience the most exciting work from the region, the event which is the third in the series, was founded by African design advocate Titi Ogufere.
DWL was first established in 2019 as a citywide celebration held in Lagos, Nigeria over ten days, promoting creativity, and
innovation across disciplines, including architecture, industrial design, interior design, furniture design, graphics design, and technology.
The theme for Design Week Lagos 2022 is “Beyond The Box” and will be taking place from October 20 – 23, 2022 at Livespot Entertainment Center. The flagship events of DWL are “Made by Design, Home and Hospitality Show” and “DWL Exhibition”.
With a unique lineup of phenomenal African designers, the spotlight will be on the award-winning international superstar designer, Ini Archibong, who will be sitting in conversation with DWL founder, Titi Ogufere and putting up a practical workshop.
